I love that it's a small community. The campus may seem big but if you put yourself out there you realize how small the school really is. People might seem like they're mean but in reality they're human beings just like you are! Don't be afraid to talk to people and explore new things.
The teachers and the guidance department are amazing. There are drug related issues every now and then but, academic-wise, it’s a really good school. There are a lot of opportunities that can set you up for future. You can take classes which, upon completion, will give you certificates from companies like Adobe, C-Tech, and many more.
