We have a career center where you can make an appointment with someone for advice on resumes, cover letters, and job applications in general. We are also a part of the Selective Liberal Arts Consortium, which offers students a better chance of interviewing with certain companies.

All classes were conducted with a view towards critical thinking. This is a great way to prepare students for any "real world" situation or career.

It's the kids in high school who are a bit different who are usually attracted to this school. The culture is extremely liberal with a healthy dose of idealism.

The dorms are adequate, but nothing special. However, the school has started updating the dorms and making them nicer. The dining halls and classrooms are perfectly fine, though the art facilities are particularly nice. To me, the star is the library. It has four floors of a variety of study environments.

A little less than perfectly maintained.
