  • the school really isn't that bad. the laptops are wonderful to have and the students there are very lucky. and although students don't really start to really use the laptops until junior year, maybe even sophomore year (depending on the student's schedule of course) then even the one or two years the student has the latptop is useful for them to get used to using it if they're not and getting used to knowing how to do things on the applications or computer itself. also, its easy to do essays and papers or projects on them at home or anywhere really. the teachers there are notable for loving ones and they are there because they want to be there, they have a reason in their life for teaching. some are really teaching because they just want to teach others, they really want others to learn and could care less if they even remembered them. of course there's a couple "bad" teachers but thats unavoidable at any school. the student body there is very diverse and there's no cliques like at many other schools like pioneer or willow glen. i was surprised a freshmen knew so many people of every grade bfore the end of the first semester. its a great environment really. and any rumors like someone got shot or there's fights everyday are of course exaggerated. maybe so there are fights but what schoool hasn't had fights there. and if there was someone shot, there's probably been someone shot at many other schools too and even then truth is, someone got shot but many many years ago and by now, its a tale thats been greatly exaggerated.
