    "Teachers at the school are very supportive and knowledgeable."

    "The teachers are wonderful for the most part. Many of them will do far more than asked. The classrooms are usually open to discussion, but some tend to hamper learning opportunities by enforcing a complete no talking rule and doing busy work. Hands on learning would be beneficial and some teachers utilize that, but some do not. They're typically very fair in grading, but could challenge the students more. They're mostly very approachable and laid back which makes learning much easier."
    Topic: Student Culture & Diversity | Rating:

    "The students are very nice kids who seem to be far more tolerant than those before them. There is very little diversity, though, but this is typical in all of West Virginia. It's evident though that cliques are not nearly like how they used to be because even my mom said she couldn't believe how everyone mixed and that it was not like that when she was in school. There isn't really much peer pressure."
    Topic: Academics | Rating:

    "The academics have come a far way since I graduated just a few years ago, but still have some ways to go. I was very bad at math and though I did well in high school and excelled in my classes I was not prepared for how to study for college. I struggled with math and science when I went to college. The teachers are wonderful, kind, and willing to help, but high school just didn't demand as much as college. It is hard to do that when kids play sports and such, but they should be more prepared for the reality of college grading. I also wish my classes involved more critical thinking about the world and how I view it or what I believe in. There's not a lot of room for diverse thinking and ideas and it's helpful to challenge your ideas and compare them to others. I really wish there were more classes that allowed you to see what you'd like to possibly major in so you don't get to college and take two years to figure out what you like."

    "I feel like I wasn't very well prepared for the demands of college. I got straight A's in high school and I knew the material and studied, but college was much harder, no room for error or bonus points and I had to learn how to actually study more than a day in advance. Math and science were my greatest struggles. I also would have greatly benefited from some sort of classes that allow you to test how you would like certain majors. I didn't know much about my major until I was in junior year of college. I think a lot of kids are taught basic skills then expected to make a decision on a career with no real basis and waste time in college trying to find out what they like. Other than classes I felt very prepared for things like finance and living on my own. I had to learn that you have to take it upon yourself to reach out to a teacher and keep up with grades because they don't baby you like high school teachers do. I wish I knew that before college."
