The staff at this school is pretty incredible, and there is a wide variety of programs, classes and clubs to participate in.

(See also my response to previous "overall experience".) By far, my favorite is/was mixed choir. The teacher was exceptional and I have a passion for it. (I've enrolled and have been accepted into Berklee School of Music in the falloff 2016). I would not choose this school again not because it was that bad, but because I would want to experience something vastly different for the experience. For instance, I've wondered what would it have been like to attend a private school / academy with a campus and dorm rooms and being away home. Would I have enjoyed that experience more or less if I could compare the two side-by-side?

The experience was wonderful. One of the clubs I joined did a lot of community service for the city. I loved doing volunteer work. It helped me mature and gave me a sense of pride about where I live. I would not change anything.
