Almost all of the homeroom teachers are very helpful toward the students. They have a proficient way of teaching the students basic and advanced curriculum. The teachers show the students how to show, Miner PRIDE. Miner PRIDE is short for: Be productive at all times, be respectful towards yourself and others, always show integrity, do your best, even when no one is looking, and show encouragement. This is our school motto, which helps the students make the right choices. The teachers and students are very nice, so you don't have to worry about bullies or silly things like that. I would say that this school is astounding, and I would recommend this school to anybody who wants to get a good education.
