The school environment here is so great! Everyone is like family to each other, and the faculty and staff are always there if you need their help. The teachers and staff truly want to see you succeed, and students are always building each other up and helping each other out. This school was the best school I could have attended, and I loved all my years there.

School of Advance studies offers more free times for students to develop their own skills and engage in extra curricular activities to fulfill their resume. Balancing just the right amount of time for student to get involve and not overwhelming individuals with workloads. Overall I really have no complaint since the school’s schedule design is just perfect for its dual-enrollment purpose without stressing out the student and pressuring their performance.
As a student I am grateful to be part of the program, no other highschool really understands the value of giving students personal time to develop their resume or volunteering. Sometimes the workloads are challenging but at the same time not as unreasonable burdening as usual highschool workload.
Between the diligent teachers, the rigorous academics, and the fun atmosphere, my two years at this school were wonderful! I always felt challenged, but not alone in my struggle. The administration created an environment among students of helpfulness and friendliness.
