Awful! If you're not white, you're looked down upon, if you're white but not rich, you're also looked down upon by the rich upper class white students who attend this school. They are mean, shallow, egotistical, and think that everyone is beneath them. There is a huge race to popularity by this type. The councilors have no time for you unless you're a straight A student. A horrible experience. A few of the teachers are somewhat dedicated but some have no time for the kid who needs a little extra help, they will stand by and watch these kids drown. Don't send your kid here unless you're wealthy and white and don't care about your kid mixing with these kids who have no dignity, morals or heart..

Horrible 100% horrible. Just because everyone at this school is rich you would think they could afford some teachers that could actually teach.
