On Academics: As long as you apply yourself and do your work you will learn a lot, but some of the teachers should not be teachers.

On Academics: Not all the teachers are in it than others. Some teachers are there because they want to help and make a difference in someone's life not just for their career

On Academics: Teachers are really helpful and will go the extra mile if you need help. The curriculum is pretty good. The scheduling process is easy. Any workload is manageable because you don't have the same class everyday.

On Academics: The scheduling was a bit off. It was very confusing. They seemed to change the school's schedule every year. But the teachers were very good at teaching their assigned subject.
