Bio is perfect in every way. The environment, the teachers, the curriculum. Everything. It's legitimately a second home to me. The teachers work so hard and collectively to get their students college ready. Not only that, but they make it fun. They have two pathways to choose from which include biomed or engineering, and it is great. All the events thrown which are organized by stugo and teachers are so great and fun. Personally, I feel like if you're a student, you should try to experience it yourself because it is so worth it.
If you're interested in the STEM field, I recommend Bioscience. The community is amazing. Anyone can fit in because everyone is kind and accepting. The teachers love what they do, and they want to prepare their students for college. Because of the downtown location, there is access to afterschool activities and places to study as well. Even though there are no athletics, Bioscience is still a great school with a lot to offer.
