Students say the best part of their high school experience is:

  • Everyone is family and wants you to do your best. We are all friends and share the same interest in wanting to go to college and do [well] in school. We fit in... and I feel comfortable talking to all my student body. They push us to strive to better ourselves.
  • The independence. I love having the freedom and knowing that adults trust you and have the confidence in you to achieve and do well. I also thought it was easy to make friends here; it was something really [hard to] do in a bigger school like in middle school.
  • The best part of my high school experience is learning how to manage high school and college courses at the same time. It helped me prepare for the university.
