Small school, not good teachers, not true


Snobbish-Very Preppy. The boys usually wear polo shirts of various colors (the popular color being pink) with a popped collar and won't talk to a girl unless they are a size 6 or smaller. The women are always dressed in some sort of uppity fashion because jeans and a t-shirt is unacceptable. At 7am, these girls are dressed to the nines. Also, on Thursday nights, don't even think about studying or working because you are expected to be Uptown and drunk.
