    "The teachers are very kind and desire the best for most of the students. I feel that I can approach any of the teachers if I am having difficulty, and I know that they will be willing to give me aid. However, the grading among all the teachers is very inconsistent. I wish the grading was uniform among all teachers and that they would not grade so subjectively or based on their opinion."

    "My experience has been unique yet quite overbearing. Our school requires that we take advanced, rigorous courses that consume much of our spare time and eliminate our opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities. I do feel much more prepared for college by taking these courses; however, I have not received the typical high school experience or memories that most people obtain."

    "This school is one like no other. It's very small and they love new students! Everybody knows each other and is willing to lend a helping hand whenever needed. Personally, my favorite experiences involved extra curricular activities, so get involved! The staff is what makes this school unique. They truly care about the students and support them in and out of the classroom. If I could go back I would still choose to attend this school."

    "It is a stereotypical social scene you have the jocks and the preps and the outcasts and the smart kids. The social scene at the school provides cliques in which you can find valuable friends however it doesn't show that much of a diversity. There is a 72% envolvement rate in the school and little to no Peer Pressure. There hasn't even been a hate crime in three years."

    "We are very diverse in this school and we have a diversity club that is one of the biggest clubs in our school and continues to grow more and more each year. We tend to be accepting of everyone here and do not judge based off of sexual orientation, racial diversity, or ethnicity."
