If you aren't from around here you are called "off" and ostracized by the student body and teachers. They bully you into conforming - STEPFORD WIVES! The dress code is CONFUSING! If you are liked you can wear whatever you want. If you are "off" or not liked by the administration/faculty, you are harassed. Academics are tough but my child who was a B student before is now all As and not because the school made her better but because she finds the classes much easier!
