The school is great and has a great and friendly environment.

I had a wonderful experience with teachers at this school; however, I cannot honestly say the same for the overall environment. Despite being one of the best schools in the district, depression and anxiety are still prevalent, and counselors could make more effort to reach out to students directly. I also had many good experiences at this school. After a nervous breakdown during a presentation, my classmates made sure I was okay and offered guidance instead of teasing me. I have been able to overcome some of my shyness because of their support. I'm not entirely certain I would choose this school again if I had to start over - I mainly chose it because of location. I probably would, if only for the variety of the courses.

Not only is my school diverse in its ideas, but I feel very comfortable in sharing my thoughts with others which is one of the most important parts I think for a student to grow.
