This school is worth it strictly for the teachers. They care about each and every student, and do all that they can to help them. The students here somewhat mind their own business, but it's a small school and gossip travels quickly. With new students coming in each week, you'll always see new faces. This can be a great environment for extroverts, and a nightmare for introverts. The school is small, and everyone seems to genuinely respect one another.

I loved the staff, the schedule, the "go at your own pace" attitude, and the support all around. I would like to see the amount of drug affiliation be put to stop amongst the students.
There are clubs available to help students become comfortable with sharing personal experiences with others and creating a more comfortable an accepting environment. Although there could be more club opportunities offered, the ones available are well designed and successful.
