    Student Culture & Diversity: Peer pressure is something that always around. If you're smart enough and confident in yourself you would not settle into the peer pressure. Social wise, this school is full of bad rumors of perfectly good students, there are alot students who are jealous of others and do not like to see them do better. I'm not sure of a way to fix the social aspects of this school.
