Henry Ford Academy: School for Creative Studies (Psad) Reviews

Throughout the years I have been going there it seems like the school is going down hill. Every since the good teachers left the school it has been getting worse. We had a Geometry teacher who would cuss kids out and call them stupid. She also would leave our class alone for a long period of time. I feel lile the principal should have reviewed her profile more closely. And we had an art teacher who is white and called one of the students a nigger. Also there was this other teacher who would argue with students and cuss at them. I want them to change how the lunches are because most of the time the food is undercooked, cooked to long, or has way to much seasoning on it and that isnt healthy for students.

Back when I went to this school durnig my 8th and 9th grade years I had a marvalus time. The Classes I was in we great and the teachers who tought them did the job fantasticly. This school in my opinoin was the closest to perfect a school could get, but every great thing have an ugly side. Well for starters the students at time could be a bit unruley. For example back in my ninthe grade year near the middle of the year it seemed like a fight broke out almost every other week, also some teachers had trouble keeping their students in line. For example once again in my ninthe grade year the students would walk out of the room without permission, they would do as they please and on occasion they would verbaly disrespect the teachers. Along side that the teachers would sometimes exspect to much from the students. But other than that the school is just fine as it is there is nothing i'd change about it other than what I just talked about.
My high school experience has been full of obstacles, achievements, and remarkable moments I will always remember. High school is sometimes considered to be a very boring and dragging four years of school. Instead, for me, it was the total opposite. Even with all the mischief I found myself in, my high school years have been everything I wanted them to be. I loved every moment being a high school student. I almost wish I could go back and start high school all over again. In all honesty, i wouldn't change anything.
