Liberal, attracts Asian and more affluent Caucasian families. Equipped and maintained well as a public high school, great college prep. Teachers are very accommodating and invested in students' careers. They ensure that students have access to all necessary resources: books, tutoring, answering questions in person, via email. Every single teacher I’ve had in my four years has encouraged communication. Teachers share as many extracurricular activities, contests, and programs with their students as possible. Impressive technological resources: photography, video production, graphic design ROP classes have new cameras, tripods, new iMacs, the latest Adobe software. The library is a welcoming, spacious environment for group studying, has newly upgraded iMacs, free printing, and very warm staff who recommend books and resolve tech issues.

What makes this school unique and the reason I would do it all over again is the rich diversity the school has. With student from all over the world, with equally spread out personalities, the school is a unique institution of learning. However, what makes this school special is the open-minds and open-hearts each student and teacher have towards everyone else. Would definitely do it all over again!
The school is very diverse, and has excellent opportunities for students when it comes to academics! It is a small school, but one of the best comparing to the other nearby schools. As people say, big things comes in small packages.
