Completely A mixed bag. Some schools are decent. Others ruled by racism, classism and cliques. The high school being the worst. Even in their turn aroud.They are completely alienating an entire half of their school by siphoning recources to the underclassmen. Teachers are constantly complaining about the lack of support they get. Mostly for valid reason. But others due to their own wickedness.
