when I first started going to capital city I was nervous and they looked mean and kind of were but I understood why they were like that but after they were actually really helpful. all the teachers I had for the two school years were actually very helpful specially my counselor who was my guide and helped me with my college applications .

There was the general stuff such as English and math. But then there was also electives one could take. I wasn't familiar with them because I didn't need them. The scheduling process was easy, you just told them the classes you needed and then they paired you with a teacher. You then meet with your teacher and decided at what time class would take place.
Everyone at the school is diveresed and different. They are all from different kinds of ethnic backgrounds and treat each other in a very respectful way. We come to school for our lectures, tests, and pick up our homework and books. Go home and finish, go back the next week to turn in.
