Its very divers and they try their best to create events for the whole school to join in and do. But maybe if they fixed up some of the bathrooms in moody Towers, or payed more attention in how they make breakfast, and meals over the weekend, this would bee a very nice school. They education is good for the price, I almost believe that people just think it's a bad school because it's placed in Third Ward of Houston, other than that, pretty much everything's fine.
