What are your general comments?

"Technology at this school is amazing, but it seems a little hokey. All the students talk about how much of a "community" the school is, and I think that's really just a product of such a small campus with a large group of students. I didn't really get a sense of how the students interact other than what they told us about their interactions. The area the school is in is pretty boring as well. Not a whole lot to do."
