As far as southwest Virginia goes it's probably the best in the area. Teachers are usually supportive and helpful if you ask questions. Everyone has a nice side but there is a lot of gossip rumor spreading. Drugs are kind of promoted among the male students but you can also easily avoid them. Most girlfriend/boyfriend relationships last 2 years or more which is kind of strange. Overall a good school.

The teachers, principal, administration are family. Not only are they family to each other but also to you. While that includes all of the side-effects of family -gossip, tough love, and dizzyness- the administration supports and is very involved. Dress code is sporadically enforced, but most follow the rules. Fighting is stopped immediately and drug dogs have annual visits. Otherwise, policies are standard.
Your group is your group. It is easy to get into a group, but once in, you can't really change groups. Peer pressure to do drugs is there for boys; sex for girls. The school is the most diverse in the area when it comes to acceptance, diversity, etc.
