    Food: There is a decent variety of food, but not all of it is good. The fruit choices we often have aren't fresh or appetizing.

    Sports & Fitness: There are competitive team sports available, but there are also intramural sports available for students who just want to have a good time.

    Teachers: Many teachers go above and beyond for their students, but there are teachers that honestly do not care if their students pass or fail because they still get paid no matter what. A lot of teachers care about the classes they teach and do their best to help students succeed, but there are other teachers who don't even show up to their own classes on time.

    Extracurriculars: There are many extracurricular activities available for students, but not all of them are funded equally. For example, the football team receives more funding than the marching band.
