Students are very accepting of others who are different from themselves. However, there is little diversity for this to be displayed. There are few racial minorities-about 5%; they are well liked and accepted. Foreign exchange students are also accepted and encouraged to become involved. Students who are physically or mentally challenged are also shown compassion and given assistance by peers when needed. I think much of this has to do with the attitudes and beliefs held by teachers and administrators as well as the strong moral upbringing that many of students have been surrounded with (family and community).

Some teachers do a great job going above and beyond in what they offer for their students but more often than not, the teacher will assign something then sit on their phones. They usually know what they're talking about and they care for the student.
We have many different sports that we offer, although we don't usually win a lot we have a lot of options. We have many music options that allow for students to express themselves.
