This school puts on a great utopian veneer, but in reality it has plenty of problems. There are so many drugs here that the administration has taken a Gestapo-like approach to trying to control it, unless of course you are a star athlete, then everything gets swept under the rug. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of great kids, but if you don't have money and the right look and demeanor, you WILL get made fun of. For guys, I suggest you learn how to fight so you can stand up to the inevitable bullying that the administration pretends barely exists, because (surprise!) it's the star athletes who do most of it. Not all of them of course, but the jocks are, well, jocks, and no amount of anti-bullying propaganda is going to change that. For girls, you'd better have the right look or you will be made fun of. Actually, that goes for the guys too. Almost everyone at this school has money, so be prepared to spend a bunch to fit in. Seriously, this school will chew you up and spit you out if you let it. It does have its great qualities, but so many of the students and teachers attempt to ruin them. I would honestly recommend private schooling if you can afford it.
