    Overall Experience: The parents at this school love to support their children. They want to make sure their child is supported and knows it. The PTO makes sure everything is okay and smooth sailing, especially when it comes to every extracurricular activity. Most of the time, at events, there would be more parents and family than the students themselves. These parents don't kid around.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers do what they say or what they are going to do, but the other teachers ruin it or the view on teachers for the rest. The teachers are either really passionate or have no drive or will to be there, there is no in between.

    Teachers: The teachers at the I want to were very competent and friendly, always ready to help when they could. Depending on which teacher you were talking to, you could even learn beyond the subject originally intended, something I love to do.
