This school is very heavy into science. Anything regarding animals, or the environment. Yet it is also heavy on art. The art is very "other worldly" It's very surreal and different art. There are so many students I know who know a great amount of trivia about animals or the environment. Also people who are wanting to be challenged in terms of their social and political status may want to come here to get out of their comfort zone and try something new.
