Definitely not a bad school, but it has many flaws. Black students get punished harsher than other groups, remote students during the pandemic have been put on the back-burner, and Dunlap is currently discussing the possibility of cutting the arts. The opinions of students and teachers (people who are actually in the school everyday) are not considered and cared about as much as the opinions of people on the school board. This has been frustrating for many.
While I only attended this establishment for two years, I thoroughly enjoyed them. I liked how welcoming the teachers were to the students. They also seemed very involved and excited about what they taught. I was easily able to make life long friends and create amazing memories. What I would like to see changed is the attitude of the students. I've seen students be disrespectful to both teachers, students and faculty. While I know there's no changing a person's personality, I believe that all people need to learn to be respectful in order to benefit themselves and others in a learning environment.
