One great thing about this school is the acceptance. This school is filled with such a wide variety of people; people of all different genders, races, abilities, interests, talents, etc.. So many different kinds of people wander through the halls of this school. The wonderful thing though is that all of these assorted people help out one another and are there for one another and friends with one another despite their differences. The supportive, accepting, compassionate environment at this school is something that makes it very unique. We've had multiple students with learning disabilities be dance royalty and everyone in this school celebrates and learns with those who are struggling or outsiders or different as if they didn't even know they were different. In a nutshell, love is something that makes this school great.

there are many opportunities to make a difference here. we have different organizations that we can become apart of, and we are very focused on our encouraging our special needs students to join many activities at school. i had a good experience there with the staff and the way the school was ran. i would still choose this school because i feel it offered me everything i needed to succeed.

The school allowed for an open environment in which the student could pressure the things they wanted without putting pressure on them.
