    Academics: Fairly decent, though sex education doesn't meet my standards.

    Extracurriculars: I'm not sure what to say about extracurriculars as a whole, but they are pretty good. (Sans for a few, now defunct clubs and a homophobic bible club from my 8th grade year.)

    Overall Experience: Parents aren't very involved, and they are like backseat drivers here.

    Teachers: As a transgender and pansexual person, I attract a lot of glares and some harassment and comments from other students. Most if not all of the teachers are friendly, helpful, and very inclusive. The students... not so much. Even though I have a close knit group of friends, there aren't a lot of friendly, welcoming clubs and extracurriculars (though the Drama Club is practically a family, and there is a diversity club up and coming.)

    Teachers: The teachers for the most part do a good job at teaching, but some teachers including math teachers didn't really do good job teaching. The teachers, however frequently would update grades and helped you if you had questions.
