  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • When I recieved my acceptence letter...there was something about it that made me think this school was amazing. And I was right. The principal cares, no matter who you are. Students are all amazing workers, and are always helping one another with their own weaknesses. Teachers and other school guidances are there to guide everyone through, no matter what decision you make in your school career. The extracurricular activities help students for everyday life. Its a safe, fun, school, with the perfect amount of homework. I love it. Hola Scholars!
