    Overall Experience: The school is incredibly inclusive and a welcoming environment, which I truly thrived in. It's 100% the students here. Administrators didn't listen to what any of the students had to say about the events/rules/etc. I would 1000% go back solely for the incredible environment which allowed me to blossom and discover myself. I also have to thank principal Scott Lyons for supporting the inclusivity.

    Teachers: Some teachers are really really good, but others are really really bad. It's binary; either you get a really good or really bad teacher. No in between. Good teachers went above and beyond, knew the material, taught from their minds. Bad teachers didn't really teach; either ripped powerpoints from the internet as our notes, or didn't bother with notes at all and taught by giving us textbooks and having us copy passages from them. I spent a lot of time just sitting there while teachers gave busy work.

    Extracurriculars: There is so much extracurricular activities here. They have everything for everyone no matter who you are. You can do a club that involves playing video games, you can do a community service club. There is just so much of stuff you can surround yourself with and just try and be yourself with those people that are just like you, and they share the same interests as you. People are very committed to their clubs that sometimes we have twitter fights against some of the other service clubs to argue who's better. The administration sometimes helps students try and make their own club if they can't find one that fits them. They're pretty flexible on what kind of clubs can be made but they also want to enforce that some clubs can't be made because they just don't fit the guidelines.
