It’s tough to describe this school to someone who doesn't go here. Most negative comments I hear tend to focus on how the whole school sucks. While it does, my biggest problem lays not so much with the school, but the students it selects. These are the kind of kids who are, for the most part, very wealthy. While that is not a negative trait, most of them have something to prove to their parents before they can take their money. Those of the variety that are not wealthy all seem to believe that key to success is over working themselves. It is my belief that there is not much actually intelligence in this community, yet the raw ability to memorize information and regurgitate it back on an exam. As a proof of this, you can see that the most popular place on campus is one of our three libraries. These libraries remain packed at all times of the day while students stress out about the extreme workload and their necessity to memorize every bit of it. While this is not necessarily a bad trait, it makes for bad times on campus. Most students torture themselves into studying ridiculous amounts to make sure that they get at 4.0. None of my classes ever get curved; in fact I have even encountered downward curves. The school motto, Meloria, which means always better, goes to show that these kids need to prove that they are always better. And as far as I’m concerned if you think you always better than me, you can go fuck yourself.
