I would attend the crap out of this school: http://imgur.com/gallery/Q1VYg
While we're on the topic of school, I had a flashback of my first time being at MSMS for interview day. My first impression back then: damn! people here seem smart. I remember one of the emissaries talking to someone and he had mentioned getting into MIT. The atmosphere at the time felt like I was going to attend an Ivy League high school. People were using fancy words like syllabus and emissary (I had no idea what these were at the time). One of the amazing features of MSMS was the fact that there was a course catalog--Clarksdale High's course selection was a boring piece of paper with a list of boring course titles. You didn't have fancy names like Analytical/Problem Based Chemistry. You didn't just have "Calculus," you had AP Calculus I, II, III.
There's a lot more I could compare between MSMS and old high school, but since most of you already know the differences as much as I do I'll just leave it at that.
