    "Most of the teachers at this school are friendly and helpful. Teachers at the school care about the students that they have and try to grade and teach in the best possible ways. Some teachers are not as friendly and can be very rude."

    "It's great that it's a small school but then everyone knows everything and when one person doesn't like you, no one does. It's hard."

    "The majority of the teachers are very involved and are very fair and good teachers. There are a select few that aren't good and do not grade fairly."

    "I, personally, have not experienced anything extremely negative here. I have, however, really enjoyed my time. Some kids can be stuck up and very sports-centered, but they grow our of it the older they get. There are some religious, right-wing nutjobs, though. Many keep their religious preferences and beliefs to themselves, though, and that's great. It's really the parents that you have to watch out for on that front. The school is also overwhelmingly Caucasian. Racism is not an issue as far as I know, though. This school is great of you like a small place where everyone knows each other. The sense of community is nice and is definitely not a thing you'd get at a bigger school. Sports are definitely more emphasized and doted on than the arts. However, the arts (music especially) remains a strong program with many talented students and offers opportunities to perform in school choirs and bands as well as firled trips. I think I would choose to come to this school again if I had to, just so I could experience the small school feel."

    "Most of them are great and reasonable and very helpful. However, there are one or two who don't have a handle on teaching yet. Which is odd because you'd think they would after so many years. Thr majority of teachers are very knowledgeable and enjoy talking about the subject they teach. They clearly enjoy teaching their subject and enjoy interacting with students."
