    "I don't want to say it was bad, but as a biracial student, I had a more difficult time fitting in than others did. Kids from the same ethnic backgrounds tended to gravitate towards each other, which makes sense, but can be a little inclusive to those who don't fit the mold. Sexual Orientation was never an issue--everyone is extremely accepting. Religion could be a little controversial among some students but overall wasn't a huge issue."

    "Right now, the school is considered the 6th best in the state (according to student standardized test scores). The teachers are extremely helpful and dedicated (for the most part), and the workload is tough but manageable. Students do attend tutoring often and students/teachers are willing to give up free periods to help tutor those who need help."

    "The school is unique especially because of its small and close-knit environment. It was always easy to make friends and by the end of freshman year, I pretty much knew everyone in my grade. The majority of the kids are supportive, kind, and willing to help out if another student is struggling in class or has a problem."
