    Overall Experience: This school was fairly average. There was an interesting social culture as it was simultaneously diverse and plagued by snotty rich kids. Despite most everyone being conceited, there was little to no bullying.

    Teachers: Many of the teachers were hit or miss here. Some teachers continuously went above and beyond whereas other teachers hardly taught or blatantly disrespected students.

    Student Culture & Diversity: There isn't a lot of diversity but it's to be expected considering the demographics of Fishers. People have their own cliques, like most high schools, but if you join a club or sport that you genuinely have an interest in, you'll make friends. I imagine it would be difficult for a transfer student who isn't outgoing to adjust to HSE - most of the students have grown up with each other since elementary.
