I'm a transfer student and I've only been here a month.
The teachers are really good at teaching. They know their subjects and are make sure students are learning.
Over the past month, I've gotten a couple of acquaintance but no close friends. This may be because the school is so large. Also, I am kind of shy. A lot of the students have been here forever and formed their own bubble. They aren't rude or anything. In fact, they're pretty friendly but it's hard to break the bubble.
There is a lot of school spirit (in the first month at least) and very little judgement.
The school is racially and culturally very diverse. There are a lot of interesting people with interesting hobbies out there.
A lot of people complain about the stress of the classes. I haven't felt it- although for all I know, it'll kick in later. Sleep deprivation is surprisingly commonplace here.
I like the autonomy of prep periods,lunch and tutorial over here.
