    Food: I packed my lunch every day after my freshman year because it proved to be more expensive to buy lunch rather than bring your own.

    Administration & Policies: Overall, the administration was always available and involved in any school-wide or personal issues. The guidance counselors were especially helpful and always tried to maintain a strong relationship with their students. Dress code seemed to be a pretty serious issue at our school, as the rules were generally pretty strict.

    Sports & Fitness: There are a lot of opportunities to stay active and participate in a sport at T.C Roberson. The fitness programs are overall very well coordinated and demand a lot of commitment and dedication from students. The school spirit definitely could have improved.

    Teachers: I enjoyed most all of my high school teachers. However, there were some teachers that performed only to the expectations and regulations given by the state, and illustrated no leniency or care for their students.

    Extracurriculars: While the school provides many opportunities for extracurricular activities, sports, etc., many clubs require little effort and time to join. I think that if the staff members required more rigorous work in order for the students to remain a member of the club, the clubs would have a lot more success.
