All Categories
The teachers are really great at explaining things. On rare occasions, if a student feels that he is not learning, it is most likely because the student does not ask any questions or for any help. However, the teachers here are excellent and are always willing to take a step back and clarify anything a student might be having trouble with. Also, many teachers are involved with extracurricular activities and encourage students to participate as they help with the learning experience.

Many of the teachers here care about the students a lot. For the most part, fair exams are given and it is usually never the teacher's fault if a student falls behind (the courses here are pretty difficult). They also speak to the students and give great advice on how to study. The teachers really get to know the students here. They learn everyone's name, and know who everyone is, as well as what they do and what they aspire to be.
Review Your School
You can take graduate level math here (not undergraduate...graduate!). It goes from combined algebra, to geometry/trigonometry, precalculus, AP Calculus I A/B, AP Calculus II B/C, Multivariable Caclulus, Linear Algebra, Linear Programming, and it even goes beyond that to some statistical type of math. They also offer AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Statistics, AP Macro/Micro Economics, AP Physics Mechanics, AP Physics Electricity and Magnetism, AP Literature. They also have an immense amount of options for non AP courses.
Mostly everyone at this school is kind, intelligent, and interesting. Everyone has their own talents and strengths. Even though many people are great and want to achieve many things, it does not create a competitive environment like many would expect. The quality that stands out the most about this school is that EVERYONE helps each other, even if they are not close friends. Its almost as if the difficulty of the high school has brought people close together. Everyone learns how to work together and organize the most fun school events and fundraisers. I would go to this school and do it all over, just for the fun of it. The people here are great and I remember great times when I think about the school.

The amount of work you are given, on the other hand, makes one want to lock himself in a room and study all day long, everyday. After freshman year, mostly everyone gets the hang of the workload and learns how to study efficiently with actual free time on their hands.
