Overall, this school is really great but it's not for everyone. Personally, the work load was too much for me sometimes and the envirnoment is really competitive and I'm not. I know school is for getting an education but it also has social purposes and it gets exhausting when everyone is constantly talking about their grades.

I believe I would choose this school again because they have a lot of opportunities for the students, as well as the teachers in the schools. Our academics are top notch, and we strive for excellence. We have our fun, but learn at the same time. I have built strong connections with some of the teachers here at this school and I love them as though they were my own parents.
