This school has tradition such as Big Sister, Little Sister. This tradition is where the freshman are pair with their big sister. I really enjoy my time being here. My favorite experience was career day. That is when the alumni of my school came back and give a presentation about their career. I would choose this school again because it made me grow into a women and see the world with a different perspective.

The school has many great traditions. The traditions allow you to form a bond with other girls. Although some students don't care about class, you have to take certain classes to challenge yourself.

I love the tradition that we had in the school. It brought us together and showed us the different talents that we had. The school taught us how to overcome problems and go beyond our expectation. If I had the chance to go back I would and do it all over again.
