    Food: I am unable to rate the food services at the school because I never ate the food the school provided us. I was ate a homemade lunch that was provided by my mom.

    Administration & Policies: The school administration did a lot to try and help the students learn and prepare them for the real world. Many students were punished for small things such as tardies and badges, but the purpose was to show them small mistakes can lead to big problems.

    Sports & Fitness: Participating in school athletics at my high school was so much fun, because so many students would attend the games and support our athletics. Our school also supported us very well, this is what made our athletic teams do well in season.

    Teachers: My experience with the teachers were always great. They loved teaching us and cared about each and every one of us. Whenever I need a recommendation letter, I always go to my high school teachers for them. They are always honored to write me one which is a great feeling.

I was unfortunately never able to get to involved with groups due to playing a sport. Nevertheless, I associated myself with Spanish club and chemistry club and these gatherings were fun.
