im actually quite disapointed in seeing that they only serve two languages. I was hoping for a lot of languages student can take. Isnt it an international school?

I have just recently graduated from this school and I was disappointed too, but we used to have mandarin, but due to budget cuts we have lost many teachers and faculty. So we would like more languages, but we need funding for teachers.

Average school. Nothing really special.

I wanted to go to Bodine but unfortunately they really do not have any that is Culinary based. It would had been cool to cook different cultural dishes since it is INTERNATIONAL. ( yes you need to write an 5 essay; intro, who you are, what do u want to succeed there, what can you contribute, conclusion)

Don't go to Bodine you guys. I'm a sophomore there and at least 15 students already transferred out or at least do homeschooling now. A boy hit me and nothing was done. I was accused of lying by a teacher because he said I could walk up and down the stairs, I had a major 6 hour procedure on my knee and have 2 metal plates and 6 screws. Why would I lie? None of the teachers will help you, only if you ask. You will be very lucky if they do help you.
