My overall experience with Franklin D. Roosevelt High School was speechless. Since Roosevelt High School was not my home school I had to start somewhere new, making new friends, and also adapting to a new place was difficult at first. What I enjoyed about school was speaking to the administration when there was a problems or students wanting change. Not all schools are good but everyone has different points of views on their experience. The opportunities that were offered was different from when I was entering high school
Most of the advance courses here had competent teachers. As for the regular classes there was few solid teachers who actually taught the students something, but most had substitute or new teachers who struggled with teaching. Students are also not motivated enough to make it competitive to reach top percent of your class. The new collegiate academy seems to recently have brought students who actually like to compete with others. Hopefully it does not lose this traction.
