    The people are great and even the teachers who might seem stern are actually very supportive of you in and outside of the classroom. The teachers here love students who are involved, ask questions, and support social justice.

    It's San Francisco! There's always something to do! Of course I'm having fun here! The people are very diverse, so it's pretty easy to find quality friends with whom you can experience awesome adventures throughout the city. It's a small campus, but students are always willing to go out. For some reason, you can never really finish exploring the city of San Francisco.

    The school is in a very good neighborhood in the heart of San Francisco! It doesn't get much more exciting than that. The people are great; however, it is not uncommon to run into cliques. I have had the most fun getting involved in extra curricular activities and taking advantage of what the city has to offer.
