I would love for our administration to try to understand what goes on in the classrooms more, I truly believe they do not do a good job making sure student's environments inside the classes are pleasant. Administrations only care about situations when a parent is involved and that parent makes a threat to take the situation to a higher person. Teachers can be disrespectful, nonproductive and even inappropriate.

I am a student attending the Area Career Center university. Although I’ve had some breaking points throughout my high school experience I had to remind myself this was an early college, a school like no other that is preparing me for my future. I really appreciate all the extra effort the teacher put in to make us students understand lessons & ways to prepare before tests. I am beyond grateful for the school and teachers that have made my high school experience a great ride and for opening my eyes to see the road ahead of me.
It was terribly crowded and underfunded as well as understaffed while I was attending my entire k12 there. they did the best they could with the materials they had. But with the amount of students they had they were terribly underfunded. The schools were rundown and so were most of the facilities. They are even now condensing the schools further and redoing them but hopefully they have gained more funding or it will end up the same as the other schools they had. especially with how they condensed the schools even more then they were.
