    "The social scene at this school really depends on who you hang out with and what clubs or activities you're involved in. As a whole, the racial and ethnic diversity of the student body is very, very diverse, something I'm very proud of as a student of Torrance High. Peer pressure is mainly only a thing if your friends are the type of people to bully you into doing something. Involvement in after-school activities is low, but general student involvement during class is decent (for example; lots of students get pumped for the monthly spirit rallies, but few come to theatre or choir performances or the Film Festival). Acceptance varies. Racial acceptance is high, but the occasional slur will still be flung by troublemaker students. I can't speak about racial issues myself, though, because I am white and have no experience with them. While seemingly accepting of people's sexual orientation or gender identity, this is just a front. Many students hide their homophobia and transphobia behind a thick layer of faux-acceptance. I, myself, identify as a pansexual agender person who presents fairly femininely. I have seen first-hand people screaming homophobic slurs to each other during and in-between class and not a thing is done to stop it. I would say that the homophobic and transphobic tendencies are less of a "I feel physically unsafe" type of situation and more of a "I feel like I am being judged for who I am" sort of situation. There are plenty of gay couples that are openly and publicly in a relationship; you'll see many walk down the hall holding hands. Don't let that fool you though, you're never going to escape being judged and treated unfairly by some. Religious diversity is definitely lacking. Most are pretty devoutly Christian, and while there's nothing wrong with that, it would be nice to see some more public representation of different religions; Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, heck even any sort of Pagan religion or belief would be nice to see sometimes."
