One of the 7th grade teachers has a program for students to run for 20 minutes before the end of the school day if the students have submitted their physicals. It helped us all stay in shape, and it also helped our conditioning for cross country. The extracurricular opportunities are great.

They are very careful of their students; the school has security guards in the school monitoring suspicious actions.
I never really noticed any counselors around and when students had problems teachers just told students to put their head down. Some teachers would ask if you needed to talk about it after school.
