Wonderful educational community. Supportive of a very large and diverse community (ethnic, socio-economic, educational need) of students. Each school definitely has a different set of strengths and challenges, but overall a thriving environment. Looking forward to greater stability and consistency in some of the leadership positions as there has been significant turnover in principals, and the superintendent over the past several years, but seems to be on the right track.

It is a very diverse community and I believe that is why most of the students are open-minded to students of different backgrounds and differently abled individuals. I also think that there are countless opportunities for students to get involved, given there are so many different clubs and sports. In addition, I know the staff that help students struggling to succeed and prepare for the future genuinely care.
The way the schooling works is terrible, in high school I was treated like I was in second grade. They are all about teaching how to be in college but they cant even let you go to the bathroom without a pass. The teaching is awful, majority of the teachers don't care about the students rather just there for a paycheck and it shows in their teaching and our grades. The schools itself look like trash and there aren't any ACs making it hard to focus on class.
