I have been taught more in my four years of a high schooler through all the tough times that I have gone through attending this school, then I have being taught. Our teachers don't even realize they're teaching us lessons when they are. I have one teacher that has taught me so many life lessons and is one of the reasons I am so adamant about going to college that I couldn't thank enough. I have never not put in all my effort into something ever since he's became my teacher and showed me everyone can do something better for the world and the best thing's come with effort.

Need to make their grading scale stricter and let students that don't get in their homework or don't try on homework let the teachers fail their students. Also they need to make the school food have real food instead of crappy food.
I like going to this school very much. Everyone in this school gets along really well and there isn't a lot of fighting.
