Students dressed in their cultural garb for Multicultural Day


"When I transferred to that school in my freshmen year, I thought that it was going to be a difficult year. I love my school. They have unique activities that I've never done in other schools. The teachers teach really well and they treat us really good. The students love to work together. If it wasn't for one of my teachers, I wouldn't have made it to where I am right now. We all work together as a giant family."
