    Overall Experience: The school including staff are unorganized and usually scramble last minute to get things done. As well as parents are just as disrespectful as their children. There is little support and stability.

    Overall Experience: My overall experience at this school is alright. The sports games are occasionally fun, but mostly not. I would like it a lot more if the students got more involved with the games. I would chose to go to another school if I could to meet better people and be in a better environment.

    Teachers: Overall, most of the teachers are very involved and caring with the students. Most of them create their teaching style around their students. They only wish for the best of their students and do not wish failure on them.

    Student Culture & Diversity: I think that a lot of students get involved in activities offered through the school. No matter where you go there will be peer pressure for nearly anything. Most of the time all the students accept you for who you are no matter what your race or sexual orientation is.

    Academics: I personally think that the work load is very tolerable. The teachers are always there to help you out and you always have the opportunity to go to tutoring that is offered everyday. The scheduling of the time in the classes seems too short. Everyone seems to love the culinary arts. Sometimes they are hard to get into due to so many people like the teachers and the activity.
