    Health & Safety: The school is big so security and health measures are not as good. The old building had a problem with asbestos in the walls but the new building that was recently built is really clean. The nurse aren't all that great they aren't capable of doing much and their diagnoses are not good. They typically just give you a peppermint for a sore throat, and ice for anything inflamed. They don't run the shower water in science labs as frequently as they're supposed too.

    Extracurriculars: Not many people get involved unless they know the field and play an active role during the school like most wouldn't involve themselves in band clubs unless they are already taking a band class. Some flyers are occasionally posted on walls but must clubs are unknown to the majority.

    Overall Experience: The only thing that really makes the school unique would be the fact that it's the cities first school. Also the mascot is a dragon. The band team/club is huge. It's a big school that had more added to it. The parking is horrible, the parking committee are unfair and inconsistent. It's neat that this is the only high school in all of Austin that provides high school gymnastics. I would have taken other classes to better equip me for college.

    Teachers: Some teachers were great but others weren't consistent in giving out extra credit or the work load. Some gave us little to no take at home work, and test us on material that wasn't covered in depth. But most AP Teachers were responsible, organized, and very fair in their teachings.

    Extracurriculars: I can't think of any sports or activities that there isn't a class or club for. Most things are student led so it lets the students be very involved.
