Posted January 3, 2014

I'm currently in my junior year. This school is great in terms of teachers, opportunities, etc. But the students are ridiculous! They're like screaming in the hallways, banging on lockers, It's crazy and annoying and it's mostly freshmen! I thought that going to an all girls school it would be less drama and more of a lady like atmosphere from the students, but i was wrong. I mean it doesn't matter where you go, you'll run into people you aren't fond of. On the other hand, this school has a very engaging and supportive staff and there are a bunch of business program opportunities like, taking trips to major banks, and learning how to become a personal finance coach. Definitely a good school for a variety of opportunities.
