I have loved my experience at my school. My school has went out of their way to make sure I am taken care of, to assure my safety, to give me a quality education. Multiple of my teachers have went out of their way to help tutor me, to make sure I know what I'm doing to be successful in their classes. Our school always tells us that we are family and I agree completely. I feel so close to my peers and my teachers because we all look out for each other!
