    Student Culture & Diversity: There is peer pressure but you can encounter that at any school. This school is known at the "bad school" by other schools but it actually is decent, we're all like a family, we know our teachers pretty well, and in a way most of them are like second moms', they're always trying to look out for our best interest. This school has a no fighting policy, so there are hardly any fights, and as for bullying, we stick up for our classmates most of the time, like they were our own siblings. Again, it's like a big family.

    Resources & Facilities: There could be more decoration instead of plain white walls. The technology is pretty good, although the excessive blocking makes it difficult for research. There could be attention to seniors from the counselor but other than that they're very helpful.
