Not a culturally diverse school by any means. Athletics (football) praised over education (this is where the money goes). Little importance focused on the arts, music, and sciences. Drugs are a problem due to boredom and poverty. Education primarily focused on standardized testing, hence the high academic awards. A few really stand out teachers. This is a very small, conservative school.
