    "Overall it was a great experience. Teachers are very knowledgeable and are engaging about their subjects. its a small school and the teacher get to know their students well and communicate with students even after they no longer in their class. The are very friendly and approachable. Everyone is very passionate about their job and the success of their students."

    "No school is perfect. There are always up and downs or not everyone gets along. But, overall there is a mutual respect for each other and if ever a situation comes about we all support each other."

    "This school is small and mostly quiet, kept away from the normal drama of having large, impersonal public schools. The teacher-to-student ratio is phenomenal, meaning every student is able to get extra one-on-one time with their teachers if they feel they need further assistance with any class material."

    "Although there are a few teachers who arguably should not remain working at this school, as any school has, the overall majority of teachers are ready and willing to help students in any way possible. The teachers are very down to earth--for example, my math teacher for AP Calculus this year can often empathize with the students some of the more difficult and seemingly unnecessary material, but she will explain to us that although it seems as though we'll never use that knowledge in the "real world," the AP questions us intensely on those topics. Many other teachers provide after-school time for students to come into their classrooms for additional help. However, this year, there has been one exception to the usual great overall staff of teachers. The current Physics teacher proved to be unable to teach the vast majority of the material given on the mid-year final for the class, and the school has handled the situation very poorly. Many students failed the final, and despite the numerous complaints from many students months beforehand, the school allowed the continuance of the current teaching styles. Personally, I had to drop the class--even after everyone did poorly on the final (the class average was well below failing, somewhere around the 50s), the school announced that we would be keeping the same teacher, and that if students didn't want the class being added to their transcript, they could drop, however this was all they offered."
