    Overall Experience: I discovered things I like and hate at this school.

    Food: There is no variety with school lunch. It is over priced, unhealthy food. If you live on certain life style concerning food, you would not be able to eat here. Usually, you can find heavy amounts of grease on certain foods. Sometimes you would have to use a paper towel to take it off. In other words, the students shouldn't be forced to eat such horrible lunches.

    Administration & Policies: Administration, at times, do what they think what's not best for the students very often. Yes, rules are enforced, but everything is ridiculous. Administration does not care about what is best for students at times. They also don't care if someone was bullied, as long as no one has a phone or has food, everything is okay to them.

    Sports & Fitness: The students at the high school I attend are very keen about football and basketball. Every time I attend a game, i always expect at least half the school will be there.

    Teachers: Some teachers let their personal life affect how they teach. A certain teacher of mine never stays on track and worries about things she shouldn't be worried about. Their are a few teachers that actually are excellent teachers.
