Our school is a wonderful place in a wonderful town. You will definitely feel right at home here. Everyone is very nice a respectful, most of the teachers are very helpful, and the school is in the middle of rebuilding and adding on new rooms. The school does a lot of different activities and clubs to raise awareness of different teen related things and to help protect students. There are a few glitches here and there when it comes to some of the teachers or administration staff but for the most part all of the staff is very helpful.

The lunch staff tries its best to give us good meals. I do not eat school lunches, I bring my own, but I see what all of my friends meals look like and I am not highly impressed. They reuse a lot of food for days, food that shouldn't be reused like lettuce. The portion sizes are very small, in fact they are the same portions elementary school kids are eating. They do not have very good tasting food because they are trying to keep us healthy. There is not a lot of variety; usually they try to have different main course food every day but the side dishes are usually the same: fruit, salad, muffin/cookie, or bread.
I feel that our teachers are all extremely well educated and the majority of them genuinely care about the students and try to engage all types of students. There are very few teacher who do not show these characteristics.
