The atmosphere is good. Teacher and student relationships are easily made. Some administrative decisions are not always in the best interest of the school however. Money is spent in departments that don't need it. Classes suddenly change in GPA weight YEARS after the class has already been taken and offered, causing students GPA's to rise unexpectedly and unfairly to those who did not take that particular class. Students who take more classes suffer their GPA dropping as opposed to someone who takes less classes.

Small School, hard to succeed with few connections and teachers with average intelligence. The academics are difficult because the some teachers have difficulty teaching them. Little to no diversity, this makes the people very exclusive towards others. Parent involvement is great because they take matters into their own hands to prepare their kids since school officials do not really do so. Not many clubs and activities because teachers are lazy and there are not enough of them to supervise.
Severe under funding of the arts is incredibly detrimental to the school body. Also, the reluctance to advance in technology is laughable--while it is understandable that (again) lack of funding prevents the acquisition of new technological advances, the intense push-back from administration concerning the use of cell phones despite the constant and incredibly well-thought-out proposals given by students and faculty alike detailing the numerous benefits based in experience and survey is very telling of the stone age that both the school system and the surrounding community continue to reside in.
