    Topic: Student Culture & Diversity | Rating:
    Posted 2016-04-01
    "World Cultures lives to its name. There's a very strong sense of diversity and acceptance. Teachers make sure students learn the cultural differences that exist and how respect is necessary to live in an inclusive society. Hispanic students are a very big number in the school, then Africans, Asians, and some people from Europe. There haven been events like "Mix it Up Day" where students who usually sit at a specific place would go to other tables and meet new people. I've had the opportunity to meet some students who were confident enough to talk about their sexual orientation. And, even though some students have different views on some people's sexual orientation, teachers would be there to open up a little more those minds."

    "Scheduling process is in between; students are assigned what they need but these schedules are very likely to change. In September and October 2015, there were too many changes and everything was messy. Some students could not even have a stable schedule and they were bound to move all the time. Adding to that, some sophomores and juniors had to deal with US History when they had not even taken Global before."
