This year been pretty nice. Very calm and teachers always willing to help. The system is different from other schools, that’s how it makes our school really different from others. Everyone is nice to eachother, everyone knows eachother. Also, every teacher knows you, they all try to get to know you. The best part of the school is that we have mentors and each mentor has at least 20 students. Everyone within the mentor group becomes more like family. We stay together since our first year of high school. The mentor group helps eachother, we study together, we go in trips together and many more activists. Something that I really love from this school is that at the beginning of the school year the whole school goes camping together, we meet new friends and we get closer to them. Also, at the middle of the school year, we go to visit colleges. We get to learn what’s great about the college and what majors they have, the dorms, etc.
I loved the teacher's commitment to connecting and support their students. I definitely would not have been able to pass my classes without their understanding and support both academically and emotionally/mentally. I do however have a lot of problems with their choices of academics. The way they integrated the new computer system for my grade, during our junior (most important) year, was very harmful to my academic career. However again through their support I was able to work with it. Also, I feel the 'college prep' aspect only helped me with determination and how to take online classes, not a lot of prep for lectures.
