It is a good experience. My only major complaint would be all the test we have to do at the end of each year. Teachers often have to skip parts of the curriculum just to accommodate these tests. Another large complaint would be the text books. They are very poor in terms of explaining things. When I was home schooled I would sit down with my text book and I could learn how to do something new in math, and understand it completely. The only way to truly understand something in school now is if the teacher explains it. Both of these complaints can't really be pinned to my school though, for they are the rules the school must abide by.

My experience has been awesome here ! It is a small school so teachers can focus on each student well, I would like to see less bullying in the students as well as the faculty.
Overall, my experience at this school was mostly bad, but okay in some ways. The school is small and everyone knows everyone, but everyone has the same mindset. They don't like change or diversity. Most people are racist and conservative. I would definitely not choose this school again because people were so ignorant and racist. There was no diversity or opportunities. The school is very small, so there isn't any variety in clubs or sports. I feel like I missed out on a lot going to this small school.
