    Student Culture & Diversity: Most students come from the same ethnic background and there's not much diversity but very rarely do new students appear from different ethnicities. Students greet them and show them around, the students find they're perfect clique and all get along perfectly.

    Health & Safety: School nurses are very kind, half of them know for I go there occasionally, I have awful panic attacks and they attend me good and know what to do. Bullying is something that is always shunned upon but it rarely happens, people stand up for each other and others do the same for a person in need. Security in school in respected and known well, very few students rebel against authority and are usually very cooperative l if they've done something wrong. I like this school a lot even with its faults, but no school is perfect.

    Overall Experience: This cool hasn't brought me any troubles, I was proned of being bullied and once I entered this school, I felt comfortable and very rarely have I been in a hostile situation with a student. Teachers get to know you, and students don't immediately neglect you or judge you. Teachers take their time to show the lessons correctly and even have time to tell funny or interesting stories. Of course I wouldn't starting high school again to join clubs and meeting new people, but I can't change that and can only look forward to the future. This school has given me good memories engraved in my mind I wouldn't change that.

    Food: The food is healthy but usually very disgusting, only about once or twice does the cafeteria surprise us with good food. Even the pizza tastes bad, how could someone go wrong with pizza?!

    Administration & Policies: The principles don't usually get involved as much, they just suddenly appear but it makes the students calm down. The security in school, that usually check for dress code or for tardee sweep, they are very known and respected since they're charismatic and funny. Most students don't disrespect their teachers or authority, but there are always rebels everywhere that ask for attention no matter what. Bullying is not a big thing, students stand up for others if they're being humiliated, and are very friendly in general. Counselors don't take initiative with their students and usually don't have time since they have meetings, but once you get a hold of one, they can help in starting you up with necessities, but not that helpful in afterwards.
