Comstock High School is a small public school in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The class size is between 90 and 110, depending on the year. The academics are very poor due to the financial state of the township. The teachers are nice and caring but don't hold high expectations because of the home life that most students endure. The administration changes every year, however, there are stand-out workers, such as Mr. James Cotter (the adviser of the college and career academy. The administrators understand the various degree of passions and work ethics among the school and always work hard to help the student achieve their goal. Comstock does a wonderful job at giving students off-campus learning opportunities, such as EFE and EFA through KRESA and dual enrollment at the local college(s). They understand that not everyone is made for college and they will work hard to ensure that every graduating student is either continuing their education or is joining a career.
Comstock High School is an extremely diverse school. A major chunk of the population is colored, and a lot of students come from around the poorest end to the richer end of the middle class specturm. The school is also mostly an athletic school than academic. If you like sports and you're good at it, you’ll recieve plenty of funding from the athletic administration, as well as plenty of support from the stands. However, if you’re more academic driven, taking advance or AP classes is a definite way to ensure your college readiness. Other than that, some teachers are more than qualified and some not so. And even though Comstock isn’t the richest and fanciest of schools, they do their best to provide students the best resources and path for success.
