    Health & Safety: They aren't too concerned about security here, but the one time we did get a bomb threat they evacuated us pretty efficiently. I don't even think we have a school nurse. Bullying happens, but it's not super noticeable. But the school doesn't do a whole lot about it.

    Extracurriculars: There is a ton of variety but no funding. I personally participated in Debate, Jazz Band, and Orchestra. They have a lot of variety in the music programs and good teachers, but it is very hard for us to travel because we have to pay the whole trip ourselves. The athletics teams all lose a lot (except the boys basketball team).

    Overall Experience: This school has a lot of available programs, they just put the funding all in the wrong places. Everyone is too wrapped up in sports to pay any attention to the arts. And so that's where all the funding goes, leaving the band, choir, orchestra, art, theatre, debate, and other similar clubs to scramble for any money to do anything. But somehow they make do. I particularly enjoyed the debate team, the coach is awesome!
