I like how everyone is somewhat friendly and the staff is pretty awesome. I don’t like how the school district is not diverse and does not have many opportunities to flourish in different languages. It is a small town school so when I first arrived in 7th grade it was very hard to make friends since everyone knew each other and I came from a huge school. Once I broke the ice I was able to make good awesome friendships. The students and teacher tend to be very nice and welcoming. The thing is that sometimes you ass if you have to be different because everyone actually notices you since your class is so small.
We are only given the opportunity to take spanish classes as a native spanish speaker I would have loved a more advanced class or at even better, offered a different language. Being bilingual, trilingual, and so on is so important in this quickly changing and diversifying society.
It’s a very small and friendly school! They have great teachers and staff. You know everyone and can develop relationships that last a lifetime! I believe they could have prepared us a little bit better for the outside world like economics classes but overall I learned a lot in my time there.
