Corrupt administration that cares more about what you're wearing than what you're learning. Defunct "Christian" values and bigotry taints what could have been an otherwise amazing school with a sad, dull atmosphere. I'd be lying to say all of the teachers are incompetent because I did have some who were amazing and went above and beyond to help me succeed, but I did encounter quite a few that either lacked proper credentials (being a private school) or an effective work ethic. Relentless homophobia and hypocrisy in religion courses, deans who take short skirts more seriously than bullying, and an almost nonexistent sense of any school spirit from the students, which is probably rooted in these underlying issues. I wouldn't advise you not to send your kids here, but definitely think long and hard before you drop $14k/year on a school that has students partaking in an ongoing joke about it being similar to a concentration camp.

Very discriminative my friend applied and took a test to enter this school and after getting a good grade they said that he cheated even though he did not could this be because he is Mexican?
