It's a very good school because you get to experience things with different perspectives. There is a lot of diversity and that is one of the major thing that represent this school. Everyone speaks a different language and that is great because you can get to know others people from other countries. We get an internship in the 11th grade and we have an iMentor program, which is great because you can talk with adults and get their experience they got in college and with that they can help you find the best fit for you. One of my best experiences at this school is that I got to make friends, explore my options and learn. One thing that teachers always teach us is to respect one another because we all struggled, for example my struggle was the language but with the help of my teachers I got ahead.
This school is the best school I know that's good for immigrant students. They improve my English so much and teachers have time for each students to explain tings they don't know.
