The one thing that I truly enjoy when it came to my school was the fact that there were no outsiders. If you just arrived then you would be consumed into some click or some club there are no outsiders at this school.

This school doesn't just have one race or ethnicity it has a variety of people you can engage in a conversation with and different people from all over the world. It's a great start before you enter the real world, helped me get used to other people outside of my race.

Some parents at Druid Hills are very committed but others have little to no involvement.
