Durand High School Reviews
The school needs a lot of upgrades and needs to perform more drills. I personally do not feel safe in this school especially some of my classmates are a major concern to others health. Unfortunately, when something is brought up about a student, not much attention is brought to it. The school also doesn't have a Sex Education class which really needs to be brought in because all the students are practically having sex with each other without knowing the risks. I truly wish I could take online classes for this school instead of physically having to go there. At least I would also get a real meal and not some leftovers from someone else's meal.
Overall, Durand has really helped me to become who I am today.Although the parents at this school usually only care for their own kids, if they care at all. Most parents are clueless about what kinds of things their children are doing. Turnout for sporting events is decent-if it is a boys' sport. It doesn't really matter if the girls' teams have won way more awards,tournaments, and titles, and the boys haven;t had a winning season in year. People tend to support the boys' more than the girls, and make jokes about the girl sports. I would choose this school again however, because I get to participate in the sports teams that I do. If I were to go to a larger school, there is no way I'd be playing as much as I do now.
I liked having a small school with passionate teachers who were able to help students individual in their free time. I think the school should have more honors classes, but I understand this is hard to do with such a small school and limited staff.
