I have attended this school for six years from 7th until senior year. Besides the education being great you meet lots of different people. Its small enough for students to know their peers personally. By senior year you will have talked to everyone in your graduating class or at have had them for class. Here are the most memorable teachers. With rigorous courses as well as plenty of after school activities its hard not to be involved.
