Overall, I have had a great experience with the educational aspect of this school. However, I can't say the same when it comes to encounters with staff members.

I really love my school! The town is small but it allows you to get to know the people in the town. The campus is beautiful and if you put yourself out there and get involved it becomes an even better experience.
