    Student Culture & Diversity: I have definitely seen some of this, bu for the most part it isn't that present. Most students stick with their group of friends and don't bother others.

    Teachers: We have good teachers, I mean if you're friendly to them they are friendly , but if not, there not, it is just impossible to think that they will care about us, when they go to sleep they don't think about how much we are struggling and that is normal,.

    It is o Portland to highlight that we have no African American, Asian or Mexican teachers, all are 100% white, how does that sound ?...
