This school is amazing. The students are so driven to learn and the faculty is so willing to aid in our success. It's a decent-sized workload, greater than your average high school, but the benefits greatly outweigh the disadvantages. Don't get me wrong, though. This school is fun, too. The biggest mistake I made going into this school was thinking it wasn't enjoyable at all. Almost immediately, you'll establish close relationships with students and teachers. After school a lot of people walk to restaurants near by to hang out and eat, or just talk. Classes seem to be a bit more lenient than an average high school, however that may just be my freshman classes. It's still up to you, however, to maintain your grades and agenda. The first year you're here, you'll take a Language Arts class, a Chemistry class, a Physics & Engineering class [abbreviated as PhysEng (fizz-enj)], a foreign language class (either German, Spanish, or Chinese), a math class (either Accelerated Algebra, Accelerated Geometry, or 1 semester Geometry, and 1 semester Pre-Calc.), and an elective. I love this school overall, and I never plan to leave. I hope you feel the same!
