Academics:

1.) Describe the academics at your school - what did you like most about it?
Academic so academic I believe is set up on a block schedule so you will have 4 classes a day. The most I liked about the academics is that every teacher can and will help you with anything your having trouble with it’s like the staff their it’s set up that’s you can’t fell. There is no possible way you could fail, that’s what I like about the academic and the mandatory study time period.
