This is a very small school and so everyone knows each other. Its a really friendly environment for both students and staff.

There is a lot of diversity so no one feels left out and everybody feels comfortable around each other. There is a variety of clubs and specific events that allow students to come together and express their passion for a specific talent such as dancing and acting. Some of these events include FoN which is the Festival of Nations that allow students to express their culture through dance. There is also SING! which is a student led production of an original play which includes art, dancing, and acting. Overall, the school offers broad events and clubs and welcomes everyone to be a part of something

This school is full of smart and intelligent kids, but that's not all--they're all nice kids as well. There's always someone to turn to for help without being afraid to be turned down, and you can just feel the passion of the students to help out other students who are struggling. The students love tutoring and love teaching, which makes them a good companion to others. Also, there are so many club and sports school spirit, as well as teamwork, where teammates stick by the individuals in the back, and encourage one another without criticism. No one judges based on differing skills, intelligence, or talent.
