I've enjoyed my high school experience, but I can't help noticing my school's shortcomings. Although it may be do to the small size, there's a lack of higher level courses, limited clubs and organizations, and clear disparity between the treatment of different sports programs.
the overall academics at UDA needs an upgrade. Teachers move on to the next topic with or without you understanding what you just learned. They need more real world math classes other than just your senior year. Everyone should know how to write a check.
