I don't love it and I don't hate it here. It's a bit tough to get the classes you want as an underclassman, and I think we need more courses. The quality of the education varies by teacher--you may get a great one, or one that sucks at teaching. The social life here depends on the students you meet, it's a hit or miss situation if you're an introvert. You kinda need to be academically endowed, athletic, goofy, or ethnic fitting to have smooth ties. School fights are rare, but do occur maybe 10-20 times per year, they're not at all murder crazy, just drama filled. Most come from the ghetto kids and I'd say the rest from girls. And yes we have policy patrol at our school, it's perfectly normal to see them everyday here. There are a variety of sports and clubs, the clubs range from academics--mathletes, speech and debate, dance, cultural ethnics, innovative--robotics, humanitarian--GSA, environmental, community service, etc.
