I'm so glad I got to attend Norfolk Aggie and not my hometown high school because you get to be outside a lot and work with animals and be with people who have common interests. If you want a school that has theater, art, or music, don't come here. If you like nature, animals, getting dirty, and being outdoors than the Aggie is the school for you. The only problem is the special ed director, who actually discriminates against students with disabilities. She even kicked some out cause she didn't want to pay for extra accommodations for them.

This school was the best for me, it gave me a chance to express myself in ways i wouldn't have been able to at a typical high school. The other students tend to be much more accepting of people who have different opinions, and the school has a positive impact on most students.
