I like the overall environment at the school. Everybody is really caring and helpful and I feel like they really want to see you succeed in life. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but here. It is also nice to be at a school where everybody has the same morals and standards. It really makes it easy to connect with people and make life long friendships.
