    Health & Safety: I have never had any contact with the school nurse. I've never personally seen any bullying or physical fights, but I have heard about them happening.

    Food: It seems like most of the school eats lunch that is provided by the school, so I guess it can't be that bad. I am a vegetarian so I have never bought my lunch from school because they do not provide me with many options other than chips.

    Administration & Policies: The most ridiculous form of punishment is ALC where the student must sit in a room and is not allowed to do anything - they can't do homework or study or read. I don't understand what this is supposed to teach.

    Sports & Fitness: Basically all of the school's money seems to go into sports and it is what the school takes the most pride in.

    Teachers: I have been lucky with the selection of teachers I have gotten for the most part. The honors teachers seem to care about their jobs more than the teachers that teach general education. The general education teachers that I have come across do not seem to put that much effort into seeing their students pass with grades higher than a C.
