Well, they don't do much about bullying, most of the teachers are very biased and pick favorites, sports seem to be valued over everything else, and they are more lenient with the rules if you play sports. Over all I think I've had an average experience at this school, and the academics are probably right at average too.

its a very small school so with having smaller classes you were able to receive more one on one with teachers but they did not teach as high of teaching and learning advancement as i would have liked.
Basketball baby!!! However they also offer several other sports and a large number of clubs and organizations to choose from. Not to mention that it's such a small school that the students develop strong friendships with each other.
