    Student Culture & Diversity: The school itself is a social array of different people. Student involvement is prominent and is one of the main ways students make long-lasting friendships. Their is a lot of acceptance there as well because many people come from the same backgrounds or similar and, the people who come from different areas are popular because the students want to learn more about them and where they come from.

    Health & Safety: The safety policy at Towers is extensive. We have an onsite police precinct at our school for anyone who chooses to get out of line with a teacher, staff member, or another student. The security at the school makes the place a safe environment for all and I have never felt otherwise as I walked through the halls.
