    Academics: The academics offered at this school come in a wide variety for students of all interests. They've got technology, athletic, college prep, culinary, and art classes along with many more. Most of the teachers have very different teaching styles and quirks that some if not all students seem to like. Each and every class of course requires commitment and dedication of any student attending, especially after every nine weeks when deadlines must be met. Tutoring is made available by most teachers and can be scheduled with them when time allows it.

    Student Culture & Diversity: I've seen many instances of gay couples casual holding hands or showing affection in the hallways and no one seems to mind from my point of view. Religious practices and traditions are respected in that it is allowed to wear something on or over your head in doors if it is affiliated with religion, otherwise, if it is a normal hat it must be removed in doors. People of different beliefs are welcome into anything offered at this school.
