This school in particlular has teach me a lot since I entered and for the teachers they are great.The teachers there are not only to teach what they know and what they have to;but, there are there to support when students need them,when they are having trouble in certain subject and even on personal problems.This is one of the great characteristics that the school have,which help students built their trust and frienship on teachers.

I personally had really great teachers who motivated me and really cared about their student's progress. The teachers were involved with one on one help for students who needed to take things a little slower. My sister has been part of this program and she's improved significantly in her academics.
Overall the time that I spend there was great,first because they helped me a lot in learning in everything I needed. The teachers are patient and very nice and helpful.Its was were I learned everything that I need to be successful in high school now.
