School of Science & Technology Discovery Reviews

It's a pretty decent school, but it really caters to a specific type of student. I have peers who struggle because they won't put in the time or effort to do their work. The only thing I think needs to change is administration. This 2016-2017 school year was the first year that I've been here (I've been going here since the 2013-2014 school year) where I felt they weren't scared to hold back students and I think it's great. The students that I personally knew that were held back were students who deserved it. However, I feel like they're still too lenient. There are students here who never put in any effort and horrible towards their teachers, yet they're still allowed to attend there even though they should have been expelled a long time ago. They always tell us that "we are lucky to go here because their waiting list is currently long and that they could easily replace us." Yet they never actually do that and there are kids who definitely deserve to be here instead.
