Our school is very diverse in culture and language. We have teachers and students of every background. Our school tests learning by doing "exhbitions", which are self created projects that tests our knowledge and prepardness for college.

Going to School of the Future was one of the best things for me academically. I have been to two other high schools prior to attending school of the Future, and I wish it was my first choice. The school allows us to have freedom and act as adults as we would in the real world. There are tons of resources and opportunities for all learners to succeed.
My experience at school of the Future was great. It definitely was that movie type high school atmosphere. The building is amazing the teachers are great. They always put the extra mile into getting us as students where we need to be. There's barely any negative conflicts in the school. For the most part everyone gets along well. Its a loving fun filled environment.
