Academics Rating

The class size is one of the main reasons I chose this school. The classes have been relatively small which, for me, is great. The professors are willing to give additional assistance if asked. My advisor is great. He has given me excellent advise on the classes I should take and has been instrumental in keeping me on track. The criminology program is very good, which is another reason I chose the school. The workload seems to be generally good. There is a good volume of work but it has not been overwhelming.

Academics Rating

My current high school is a performing and fine arts school that is also highly geared towards college preparatory work. It has a rigorous academic side as well as a well rounded focus on the arts. There are not many AP classes available however. The only classes it offers in that regard is AP Calculus, as well as a few honors classes. Overall, the education provided is excellent and is a lot of work; the focus on art is also very emphasized.
