On Teachers: Overall, the teachers really do care for the success of their students and spend time trying to improve and help in whichever way they can.

On Administration & Policies: The guidance counselors are there to help students in any way they can, though due to some situations, they can't always grant what the student wants such as a change in class.

On Overall Experience: The freedom of choice that this school allows a student to have is probably the main factor that I took into consideration when choosing where I wanted to attend. I've learned much more than I though I would, including knowledge of the outside world thanks to our teachers. Simply knowing that they are there to help, without any hesitation has truly made my experience far greater than I thought it would be. Both teachers and students help one another in order to build on what we know.

On Academics: Since the school is run by a four by four schedule, the speed process is much quicker. However, it allows students to explore more classes and pursue their personal interests. Depending on the classes one takes, the workload can vary, but overall it usually tends to more.

High School Senior

On Extracurriculars: The extracurricular opportunities are widely diverse. The student's ability in managing the different clubs allows them to work properly while allowing a mutual benefit to those who join and those who have already spend their time in the club.
