The school administrative is very strict when it comes to dress code, and attendance. No one was not allowed to wear sneaker,only black shoes . And every students must have a tie on their neck and their shirts must be tucked in at all time. If you were to come to school with sneakers you would get detention. School would start at 8:30 and if you were late three times that would equal one absent and the principal will make it her duty to embarrass you.

What makes this school unique is the shows that the teachers would help the students put on. I remember this nutcracker show the school had for Christmas. It was amazing. I couldn't stop watching the rehearsal.
