first of all the school is amazing, for the right person. Not everyone can come to this school. but it is great for the ideal kid. I love the school, but certain aspects do need some work. however....IF YOU FIND SOMETHINGS 'PERFECT' WALK AWAY. I do not honestly believe there will ever be a perfect school. because we as humans created school, and we are fallible. hence school systmes are too. This school may have its rough patches but ultimately, if you can do it, I would suggest it. administration needs a little work, but most people if your honest and sincere with them, they will be with you. The grounds are beutiful, but the buildings need some serious work. While the school is putting in nice facilities such as the keeter center, and McKibbens, as well as McDonald. They should definitly send their construction department to Jones, Pheiffer, and Burger Hall. They are NOT attractive in any way! and frankly the school has very nice things in those buildings that would be highly favorable to the public to know about, but not easily shown, because of the condition of the buildings. As well as the muesum, it has many amazing things in there and many many others things just waiting to be displayed, the building should be knocked down and replaced elsewhere with ideal directions, and more publication! the public enjoy it, half just dont know about it, or get lost trying to find it! As far as student activities, the school does a wonderful job supplying them. however they should generalize school trips. many people cant go on school trips simply because they are not 'part of that group', while several people, while active do not ever get the chance... due to 'the schools timing'. they should do a general senior trip for each gradueating class, to offer to any seniors who in their 4 years did not get to attend one of the schools many trip oppertunities.
many things are great, some are not. overall though I think the school is beating the odds, and showing America that God can win in a school system.
