    "There is something for everyone here but I wish the schedule rotated."

    "I'm not religious, so I obviously don't like the religion aspect. Diversity is very low - everyone is white, upper class, and straight. The teachers don't know how to teach, and the students don't want to learn."

    "Overall, I do love this school and the people in it. Because the schools faculty is so terrible students become very bonded. As a student who attended public school than transferred, to this school I find that in exchange for a friendlier environment, I have signed away my rights as a human being. The strict no water policy, degrading way they treat young women, and poor quality of teachers is very frustrating. Also, the absolute lack of a college guidance and even regular guidance department is horrendous. The counselors are extremely over burdened with students and do not help with class scheduling or future planning. In more than a few instances, I was passed around from my counselor, who doesn't even know my name even though I have been to see her at least 10 times, to the front office to the student services leader. Just to find out what I should take my senior year to make the best for colleges to see. To be frank, they have no idea what they are doing and I am not the only student who has experienced this. Almost every student will tell you the same thing: they are not helpful and only having one man do the ENTIRE scheduling for the whole school is appalling. On top of it all, there are only a few teachers who are willing to help out students who need the extra help. When you hear the teachers are bad, they are not just bad they are horrible. They call out students who don't do so well publicly even though we are trying the best we can. Teachers are not good at communicating and even worse the drug/drinking problem among the students is overwhelmingly bad, even worse than the local public schools. On top of it all, the school is more concerned with the fact that some girls have a hole in their stocking or that we are carrying a backpack than the fact that students have weed in their locker and the hallway is literally stinking with the smell. On the bright side though, I have met some of my best friends and I'll have great stories to tell my kids!"

    "In my personal opinion, this school is not for me. I don't think it was the right fit, and most of the time I really wanted to switch. However, I do think that overall this school is great. Some people really do love it, the kids and teachers are much more respectful than other schools. the bullying is at a minimum, however the cliques can be out of control sometimes. Although this school should make some changes, especially in its disciplinary area, overall it's a good strong community."

    "There are very few teachers who are great. The younger teachers seem to be better, but there are still a lot who don't seem to care about the kids and spend more time yelling than teaching. They don't understand that different people learn differently. Some teachers are extremely unintelligent, and they have a very limited world view. I'm excited to go to college where the teachers and students are all knowledgeable and more worldly."
