Going into Dundalk highschool my freshman year it was nice and exciting at first but as I spend more years in the school I came to realize the severe bullying and neglect of teachers at my school. Teachers don’t care at all about the students, and are just there to get their job done and go about their day. Because of the neglect students stop caring less and less and drugs and fighting comes into play because that is the only way students can make their voices heard by the place that is suppose to help them find success and lead them to their dreams.

Dundalk High School was an alright school. The student mentality was probably the worst with students being needlessly rude to teachers. Some teachers really needed to be fired due to lack of competence in teaching (especially in the math department) Despite this, I met some great teachers that I still talk to and I actually just went to their winter concert to show support. Not the best school, but also not the worst.
I think we could have teachers that could help us to better understand the content more. I think From day to day we don’t have the teachers to help the students actually understand why they have to do these certain things. Like in math if you do an equation, why are you using this equation rather than this other one. Or relating to the question how could we know which one to use
