It has an atmosphere that really shapes your character, but in certain moments it gets hectic due to small lapses in staff and affairs. Overall, I enjoyed my experience, I got actual learning done and became a more outright person.
I like that the school is small and that you get more opportunities to get help from a teacher or someone who walks in the classes. I also liked that they make it about community and that they try to make sure I feel welcomed no matter how long I been there my whole 4 years of high school.
