    Health & Safety: I would say the health and safety policies are very good. I never felt unsafe at school or had any problems relating to health with the school.

    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular opportunities at this school are great because they are high in both quality and quantity and the clubs that are offered and relatively diverse from one another. Some clubs excel more so than others but most are pretty good.

    Overall Experience: My overall experience at the school was pretty good because the school offered many different outlets for self-expression. There was mostly likely a club/organization for anything you might be interested in and with effort, you could find a niche in school in which you belonged.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers at the school are very knowledgable about their area of study and do a good job of presenting that material. Some teachers however simply recite what is already given in the textbook and do not have an adequate grasp of their subjects

    Health & Safety: This school is in a safe area with safe students, so there has never been a need for extreme security steps to be taken, but in this day and age with school shootings the security has been improved, which I think helps make the parents, staff, and students feel safer.
