Locke is an okay school, you will have no trouble passing your classes if you just do your work and keep up. The administrators are bad, but they have good teachers and students. The sports teams are excellent!
I have had an exceptional experience while at Locke high school. I have been taught at college level and as I graduate, I am sure ready for college life. The teachers are excellent and positive. My school is great but not entirely perfect. I will like somethings to change especially security and student control. Many students act out of place and a little more effort should be used to curtail them. My school is really doing well security wise but more security on campus will be great.
