What impressed you positively?

What impressed you negatively?

"They said boards were "at or near [Read: probably not above] the national average." The students apparently never go to class. I wish they had a less traditional curriculum and scrapped the archaic ABCDF grading system. Although I enjoyed talking to the high-caliber students who were interviewing with me, I got the impression that it wasn't a top-choice for very many of them. " Report Response
