High School Junior

On Student Culture & Diversity: There has been a problem with acceptance in the past especially with openly homosexual students. They are not as accepted as they certainly should be and several have been bullied at some point during their interim at the school. There is very little ethnic or racial diversity at this school because of where it is situated but as far as I know there is no prejudice towards any races.

High School Junior

On Teachers: While there are teacher who don't seem as motivated, some teachers, especially in the AP and IB areas clearly are there for the students and want to help them succeed. They are very intelligent and willing to offer time outside school to help students however they can.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: It's average, not all are advertised enough.
