    Overall Experience: I wouldn't choose to go to another school, given the option. My experiences of going to football games and hanging out with all of the great friends I made through the music program have become irreplaceable. The trips I've been on with the Honors Orchestra have been the best highlight.

    Food: The food usually looks and smells unappetizing and students typically opt for pizza and fries. There are few to no dietary accommodations.

    Administration & Policies: Students who misbehave must report to the tough but reasonable administrative staff. The staff helps students to break unhealthy habits and promotes positive behavior.

    Sports & Fitness: All students are given the opportunity to try out for any of the sports teams. Many students attend games to support the teams and the programs and facilities are top noch

    Teachers: Overall teaching quality is superior. If a student needs extra help, time will be provided for the teacher to help them and students can email the teachers from home if they have extra questions. Teaching style varies from teacher to teacher and they are all very knowledgeable on their individual subjects. All teachers seem to care about students as people instead of a large room of kids they teach every day.
