On Teachers: I love our teachers. They're amazing and deserve so much more than how other students treat them.

On Overall Experience: It's okay, but it's really not what I'm used to. The overall school attitude here is really narrow-minded. Those who have lived in Weaverville for generation upon generation are just too used to doing things a certain way. They need to change a little bit to keep up with modern America.

On Academics: I LOVE the teachers. They make this school bearable. And I love school in general, so I'm probably just bias when I say our academics are pretty good. Not for standard classes, but the AP curriculum is excellent.

On Student Culture & Diversity: There is no diversity at this school. Of 1,200 students, I would estimate 1,000 are white, 195 are hispanic (mostly Mexican), and 5 are black. Acceptance is a real issue; there's a lot of racism. And as far as sexual orientation, my overly religious peers are very unaccepting. They harass LGBT students on a regular basis.

On Administration & Policies: Our dress code sucks, because NOBODY follows it. It's not the administration's fault, it's just the unruly students.
