As a recent graduate, I can say with confidence that high school generally sucked. While there were some exceptions to my generalizations, the teachers were generally miserable, the students were extremely cliquey and abused all types of drugs and the must of the ciriculum was taught to/from the test, rather than actually teaching students lessons that they would retain for their college years. I felt completely lost and unprepared for college and life when I left .
The staff for the most part are the nicest, most genuine people. While I sometimes felt annoyed or overwhelmed by what was expected of me, they were (mostly) always there to help. Very intelligent and caring people work at Frontier, I am lucky to grow up there. If I were to change anything I wish the well behaved students had more free power, it seemed like if something went wrong, the whole school would be punished, and that's not fair to the students who behave as they should.
