    Academics: The teachers are really great at the school. They are willing to work with the students, they want the best for everyone. I think that sometimes the workload may be difficult when you don't have a computer, so when teachers won't budge on that, it is hard. I think the most popular classes are often taught by the most popular teacher, and that's different for everyone.

    Student Culture & Diversity: There is so much diversity in the school, it is amazing! I think that we are overall very accepting of each other, regardless of what differences we may have. I wish that the diversity was promoted more, it would give the social scene a better look.

    Extracurriculars: The ones offered are excellent because they give everyone an opportunity to join if they would like to do so. I think that there should be a bit more of a variety added to them. I would like to see more people joined in them, but I know that it isn't the fault of the club or activity.

    Overall Experience: There are parents that like to get involved with the school and what is going on with the students that attend their. While I would like to believe that these parents care for the overall success of all students, I believe that most of them only want success for their students and the friends of their students.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers I've encountered are happy to be there and to be of service to their students. For the most part, I think that the teachers are grading fairly. There are a few teachers that aren't very open to new ideas and don't want to let students know that they are right. But when a student has a problem with those types of teachers, the rest are their to help.
