Although the academics at this school may be great (and I'm sure that they are), but the social aspect of this school is seriously lacking. I had a friend who went here and she was one of very few African American kids there and the students at the school never let her forget it. They treated her so badly just because she was a little bit darker than the majority of the student body. It just goes to show that just because a school is academically excellent, if the kids are mean and rude, it's not worth the hassle.
