Teachers are just horrible at their jobs. Half of them dont take the time with students who maybe are considered troublemakers and instead just yell at them for doing something as simple as getting up and getting a pencil just because they're considered bad students. Teachers definitely pick favorites. Some students can talk and not get yelled at while others may ask someone for a pencil and get yelled at. They also never call parents. Once my sister hit another girl and they never told my mother. I found out from someone else and I had to tell her. This obviously isn't ok and if my child hit another person id expect a phone call from the school telling me what happened. This isnt the only time this has happened either. The food is terrible. I cant even eat a salad because they ruin them half the time. They'll put whole slices of "cheese ", random seeds, crasins, and god knows what on the salad. So being a vegetarian I go hungry most days.

I liked the sense of community that the staff cultivated with their students, in some ways it felt very inclusive. Mainly though I felt that the administration did not do all in its power to make their students feel physically and emotionally safe. While my time there was spent peacefully I know many a peer who felt alienated with no viable path of recourse. The classes were decent, of varying intensity, but nothing too exciting.
Some things I like about this High School is that I enjoy the English and history teachers. However, thee math and science department here is not the strongest and often kids graduate without a solid foundation in either.
