The school has an amazing diversity in the student body that really blends cultures and diffuses stereotypes, racism, homophobia, etc. Overall nice environment with a nice looking campus.

I have had an amazing high school experience so far, and do I do not believe I would have gotten the same thing from other schools. The administrators and teachers have played a large role in this, and I would most definitely choose this school again if I could do it all over.

The school itself is a great place to be. I feel comfortable and accepted at this school. I would attend this school again because of the great experience I had.
