Angelou Community High School Social Justice Reviews

This is one of the worst schools in academic terms. The majority of the students don't try to pass their classes. There is a lot of ditching going on and more than half of the seniors have to leave the school because they are not on track to graduate. It is not the teachers fault though, they do a really good job. The problem is the lack of motivation the students have and the lack of school spirit. The school has "rules" which no one follows because nothing is done when students don't follow them. I think the only good thing about the school are the staff and students. Overall I think I would go back again if I could and do better as I was one of the many seniors who had to leave in order to actually be able to receive a high school diploma.

The teachers at my schools do the best they can. Most of them do more than others because they truly care about the students and understand situations they may be going through. Most teachers are comprehending when a student does not turn in work on time, therefore extending the deadline. Also, the teachers here try to teach us what they know will be useful to us throughout our lives and want us to be a little experienced before we leave high school.
My time in this school has been a good one. I personally believe that my senior year has been the best one because I joined a club within the school. By doing this, I am open to doing more things within my community as well as being more involved within the school itself. Starting from ninth grade, I feel that I have been able to grow academically thanks to the support of the teachers and a few students.
