While you can join many different activities they don't do anything if you are being bullied. The guidance councelers main advice is "Stay away from each other" and the nurce doesn't belive you. The majority of the teachers are amazing but others are terrible.

The academic programs are comparable. The music department is great! We have a steel drum band that is fantastic. There are several sports available. The school has recently gone through a beautification process. The PTSA has an active volunteer group.
