I entered BTW in 2015 and I thought it was a good school. However, with time I saw that the school wasn't as good as I thought. Administration does not care about the students that bring the school up they care more about the football team. There are some good teachers, but there are also teachers that do not care about educating the students, but more about their paycheck. The security is atrocious due to the fact that anyone can go into the school and hurt the faculty or students.
I came into Booker T Washington in my Junior year of high school, this school has teachers that care about you and your future. They take their time to teach you each and every lesson until you are 100% sure you understand the topic. They make sure you leave high school with a successful future ahead of you. The students all come from hard backgrounds and we all have to work in order to get the future we want, the students keep it real with each other, and help each other through hard times.
