Well, let me start off by saying how complicated my school was. For one, there was no typically bullying. There were rarely any fights (that I know of) and even more rarely were there just people critically insulting others. What my school instead prided upon was the effect of showing off. Social media plays a massive role in our society today but it is especially present in schools. In my school, there are endless pictures and stories of people showing off what they have and what they are doing. Oh, you're going to a party and have to make sure the school knows you are cool and drink? Post some pictures of you drinking! Oh, you're working out and getting those "gains" as they say? Post some pictures and don't forget to flex it off! Oh, you got into a good college by having your family donate massive amounts to the undergrad program? Post some pictures and make everyone feel bad about their colleges! It has come to a point where once you achieve something, the whole school must know.

Great high school - so many opportunities to make yourself better. Teaches really care and administration and faculty is very understanding. The parents are pretty involved usually and the sports programs are great at NVD. Furthermore, their arts program is amazing and their musicals have never failed to wow. Definitely recommend.
I loved the staff and my friends at school. I really felt welcomed in my school and my community. Everyone was helpful, and I did not view high school as a cut-throat competition as some make it out to be. We have a lot of school spirit. School sports, plays, and other activities and events are very fun. Football games are my favorite!
