    Resources & Facilities: I rarely received help from my counselors. The prep for college is not that good at this school, all they say is "Go to college". They do not provide dates for college tours, scholarships, etc. We, the students, have to do most on our own. The technology is great, I believe we have enough. The buildings are fine, and well taken care of.

    Academics: The amount of classes you can take is amazing. Most students do not even have enough room to fit in classes they want to take. The workload (usually AP classes) is huge. Most of it requires you to study. If you fall behind, the teacher leaves you, and its your job to catch up.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Everyone is accepting! There are a lot of cultures within the student section. There are even happy gay couples that receive support from the students. The diversity is the best, and I could not ask for anything better.

    Health & Safety: The school nurse is hidden. You have to find her to receive help, and half of the time she's not there. The school psychologist is usually not there either. Bullying does occur, and the staff does little to prevent it. I do feel secure when I am at school, and I have never felt as if I were at risk.

    Overall Experience: The people you meet at this school are AMAZING. But a lot of people are only worried about themselves, therefore are not team players.
