Some of the teachers try to go above and beyond, but most students are disinterested, this can have a damper on the teachers' motivation as well. Also, the school is known for athletes ( Mostly football and basketball) and kids feel this is the way out. Unfortunately, this is can be disservice to the children who are left behind. My child is one of the few who can put the distractions aside and really learn. He has expressed not feeling very confident in being the top academic student in his class because he comes from a poor preforming school, however we have discussed the fact that despite that fact, he scores in the top 95% - 97% percentile in nationwide testing. This does give him satisfaction that he is able to overcome obstacles with hard work and a passion for learning new things.

There were a few times that my child was bullied being the "different child" but this was mostly in grade school. It seems that the other children see how he wears his "geekiness as a badge" and that he is comfortable with himself, they have a certain respect for him. Many of his teachers say that he has great leadership qualities.

We did have an incident last year where a child came to school late and was not put through regular security measures and a little while later he was found to have a gun on him. He had in wrapped up in a coat and it fell out and he was caught before he could harm anyone. They have changed their policies since.
We ,probably like most schools have a mixed bag of teachers. Some get through the day, and some are outstanding. I ma very impressed with my child's science and math teachers. I think that they see a kid who is interested in these subjects and appreciate it. They also will let him explore on his own. We do not have a lot of after school activities for kids that are more academically inclined. Also, there is not an activities bus that transports kids that live further than walking distance.
