    "When I came to this school as a freshmen, I was unsatisfied with the lack of diversity among students, classes, and extracurricular such as sports or clubs. However, as time passed and as a junior, my thoughts have changed. Sure, more clubs and classes would be excellent, but the small size of this school builds a tight-family like community between students and teachers, and allows for the buildup of many great relationships."

    "I've been through a lot of tough times, some bumps here and there, but overall, I LOVE THIS SCHOOL. I've made important relationships with my friends and teachers that I know will last forever. The family that I found within this school is what makes this school unique. From the school spirit weeks to the talent shows to the Battle of the Grades and the Multicultural Feasts, I realized that the experiences that I have are replaceable. If I had the chance, I would go back in time and re-experience it, even if that means that I would have to retake every essay and tests in high school. As a senior, I can tell everyone, even the seniors that were there when I was a freshman, that I would most definitely choose this school over and over again. The bonds that I have made with everyone will, most fashionably, leave me in tears on the last day of high school. I think I'm shedding some tears now, too. 9.9 stars out of 10!!"

    "Although the school is really small, we have close relationships with our teachers because of the small student to teacher ratio. People don't really get that type of attention in other schools that are large."

    "All my teachers are lovely and they really know what I need help in. They know how we think and incorporate it into their lessons. One of my teachers noted over the years that many of us struggled in a certain topic because of the difficult wording of the problem. So now, she devotes a whole day to helping us decipher the wording of the problems. The teachers in this school really go above and beyond, and this is no exaggeration."
