This school was definitely interesting, the best part about it is that it mixed education and creativity. While of course students were required to take the basic classes (English, math, science, history, etc.) we were also available to take art classes such as; Choir, Theatre, band, photography, etc.

The school was really nice. I felt like I fit in and had a lot of classes to offer. I did not always feel like the faculty cared about the opinions of other students or how we felt about certain topics. Overall the academics were well and the clubs and other services as well. There was barely any parent involvement in the school.
The teachers were amazing! they did everything they can to make sure their students were successful and achecived their goals.
