    Extracurriculars: The sports at this school are not well managed by the Athletic Director. The previous athletic director did not know what was going on and allowing the coaches to make poor decisions. The basketball coach at this school is very poor and does not care about the students. The coach seems to be protected by the previous athletic director. This basketball coach should be replaced to a more qualified and student centered coach.

    Teachers: The teachers at this school, especially ones teaching AP classes are top notch. All the teachers are highly engaged and know their subjects.

    Overall Experience: All the teachers go out of the way to educate their students. The teachers are very engaging with the students. Only concern I see is that the environment seems very competitive. There needs to be more attention given to students with respect to collaboration. Encouraging students to collaborate instead of competing with each other. This will help them both in real life as well as college.
