I am a recent graduate from this school, & its focus is primarily on achieving high grades -- not the student's well-being, unique abilities, or character, & leave students to manage it on their own. What the school wants is high scores that they can show off. Many programs such as the arts and theater are slowly going away, and they are enforcing more math and science. Only a few of the teachers there know what they're talking about, and there were only about two or three that inspired me -- the rest I hardly learned anything important from. Also, this school finds sports very important. Not saying that it's necessarily a bad thing, but one year during a veteran's day assembly, they cut it short to talk about sport achievements, which I thought was entirely inappropriate. However, the school does have some good qualities. They have a very friendly, non-racist and close environment, though it isn't a diverse population. It's mostly white middle to upper middle class families, with a few black families. Many of the students get involved with extra-curricular activities such as sports and the like. The school, as I said above, does have high test scores, which is a good thing, too.
