    Extracurriculars: There's a large variety of clubs and activities, but most seem half-formed and unstructured. Then there's the handful of activities that get way more appreciation than they deserve (looking at you, football and marching band) especially compared to those very committed students in smaller clubs (ie orchestra and academic team).

    Teachers: Some teachers are actually there for their students and are great at their job; while others seem to despise their position and their students and aren't much help in or out of the classroom.

    Teachers: Some of the teachers are SUPER great but some complain about their job and are only there because they have to be.

    Extracurriculars: Key club, Yearbook club, Leadership club. They are all very fun and exciting, keeps students busy with different activities and all of the clubs are great at teaching students how to be involved with each other as well as with the school.
