Classical is very diverse when it comes to the student body. Students are very involved academically and athletically and I have never felt peer pressured at school. There is no discrimination, especially when it comes down to religion. I've met Jewish people, Catholics, Athiests and Jehovahs Witnesses. People are able to express who they are sexually, especially through out LGBT Group. In the group they actually sell "Love is Love" tshirts that other supportive students may purchase. There is also no discrimination against race, I have met people from all over! Transfer students from Spain or even Kurdistan.
Classical High School delivered the education that all students deserve to recieve from their local public school. My experience at classical was an all around great one with no faults besides funding issues. The culture at the school is very inviting and caters to all types of people. From an academic stand point, Classical has the rigorous classes, helpful teachers, and extensive class options that guarantees a students preparedness for college.
