i've seen this school several times while touring, shadowing and going to the open house and I love It. I hope to go to this school next year.

I'm a student there. And it is AMAZING. The teachers are really fun, but hard... the application process is rigorous and selective, which means that the students there are both nice and smart, as opposed to other schools, where they might be less so... and the campus is BEAUTIFUL.
