    "Teachers were in general pretty great. They cared about the students, and the workload was nothing an average student couldn't handle"

    "I was pretty much the only Asian girl in my school so I feel like it was just harder for me to relate to everybody else, but despite a few ignorant students like there always are, the general population didn't make try to intentionally make me feel outed. However, I've seen so much bullying going on with students who people just viewed as weaker or "gay.""

    "The instructors and staff at this school are friendly and are very knowledgeable. The instructors are pleased when students ask for help and are more than happy to give what they need. The staff does an excellent job in keeping the school as a safe environment where students are ready to learn and help when is requested."

    "The school is small with little over 400 registered students. This makes it easier for everyone to know each other and reduces the chances of any student getting lost. My high school experience is very amazing and I would do it all over if I could. My favorite experience was when I participated in something that was called the WAPI, or Water Pasteurization Indicator, when I was a member of the Interact Club. The purpose of it was to create these and reach our goal of a specific amount to send them off to people who do not have access to clean water and who are in need to drink safe water. It was fun and if I had to do it again, I would."
