I know this may be hard for some people to believe, and I'm sorry if I offend anyone, but let's just say that nobody there ever cared for me. They lied about many things that I will not go into detail about due to privacy. The so called Distinguished school does not live up to its title one bit. The social structure is nothing like it should be. It's full of social cliques in which if you are not part of one, you're an outcast. The academic classes made me feel like a failure, because of their own failure to support individual learning styles. The classes were huge, and nobody seemed to aid you when you needed it most. It's an all around bad school, and I would not recommend going there. And as for staff, I would recommend focusing more on the INSIDE rather than making it look pretty on the outside.
