Student Culture & Diversity:
Living in the rural south, there is very little racial, ethnic, or religious diversity, and the attitudes of these majority student's are not always positive in regards to minority students. This issue is typically only prevalent in the students from the lower achieving side of our spectrum, as the high achieving section of our school is highly accepting, and many of them speak out on current hot-button political issues. The diversity in gender expression is somewhat low; however, there are many different sexual orientations represented in my circle of friends alone, and the school as a whole has only grown more accepting toward these people since I was a freshman. Typically, most students are involved in at least one extra-curricular activity.
