I loved the small classes and every teacher knew you by name! I loved the flexibility the teachers always provided. Also, I liked how some classes were lectured and others were based off an online system.

After school there are lots of clubs that meet for example the international club,the basketball team,the cheerleaders,dance team ,music club,and cooking club.most of the students really learn alot from the clubs because we get to do community service hence helping the community.we also do some charity work and fundraising and the money is give to a charity of our choice
Everything has its faults but to be able to standout even with the faults you are unique.that makes my school unique.
