    Academics: Could be a lot better. There are the AP kids who work their butt off but the school doesn't really help with that. The curriculum is average but the AP kids make the most of it.

    Student Culture & Diversity: In the upper level classes there is great diversity of culture, beliefs and ideas. In the lower classes everyone is typically the same: racist, rude and plain disgusting.

    Health & Safety: There isn't really a threat on campus but if there ever was I don't think the school would be prepared. The campus officer is quite frankly stupid and has no idea what's going on and is completely useless. The school nurse is scary and yelled at the seniors the day before prom about how we were all going to either have an STD or get pregnant if we had sex.

    Food: All the food options are boring and I honestly don't think anyone really eats the school food.

    Teachers: Some teachers are incredible and actually care about their students and their education. Others are horrible and come to work solely to ruin student's lives. They take out their problems and frustrations on students and teach nothing and rather yell at the students for not already knowing the information. Some teachers are rude and borderline racist and make inappropriate remarks and comments.
