This school is very diverse. You can meet kids from places you never even knew existed. The saying, You learn something new every day really applies to Park. The teachers here are very nice and fun, no student really fears any teachers. The students here make it easy for you to fit in. You would not be able to go whole 30 minutes here without someone making you smile. Students here always make sure no one is seen sulking or sad. Everyone here will make sure you have your best time here. I have made many friends here, I have learned about 13 new languages, about 3 new countries. And hearing about others'' backgrounds made me both curious about other places, and grateful for what I already have.
