The teachers really try to work around students and their busy schedules! Every teacher is involved in the school's sports teams and are overall super supportive.
The teachers truly want what is best for their students and will work with them to make sure they are successful. The students are nice as well, it is a small town school so everybody knows everybody. However, I would like more extracurricular classes offered.
