The school's crowded and lacks diversity. The teachers for the most part don't really put in more effort than they have to, and the student government is always the same kinds of people- the wealthy, entitled, "popular" folk who feel like they waste time around those without their "status". The cafeteria serves the same kind of food year-round, with a plastic cup filled with sugary, syrupy strawberries being a staple. The administration recently refused to hire a fully qualified female Drama teacher who had put in her heart and soul into directing a whole musical for the students of Hillcrest ("Fiddler on the Roof" ) while permanently subbing at the school in place of our former Drama teacher who had been caught doing illegal activities. Why? Why didn't they hire this fully qualified, degree-displaying, relatable woman who had already formed bonds with the students? Because the guy the administration "chose" was close friends with the principal. Favoritism at its worst.
