What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?


Artists are often stereotyped as being laid-back, absent, liberal people; always smoking, drinking coffee, and dressing in alternative clothing. They are also commmonly thought of as snobbish people who refuse to accept critique because others simply don't see their "vision". At Lyme, these stereotypes (as is often the case with stereotypes) do not go entirely unsupported. But there are a variety of personalities at Lyme and many students do deviate from the stereotypes.
