The school over all is average. The food is terrible. The teachers are really great and friendly, want to help, but students hardly learn anything. Many of the kids just screw around on their IPads all day. There is absolutely no college readiness. The staff is super nice, the activities are fun. Over-all, it's a pleasant environment but no learning is accomplished.
Teachers at our school overall are pretty average. Some do as much as they can to ensure that their students are learning and excelling in the course, while others could care less allowing the students to do the bare minimum and scrape by just enough to maybe pass the class. There is also a sense of unfairness in the classrooms with some teachers, with some if the teacher does not think very highly of you then you will definitely struggle in the classroom, but if they do like you then you will likely do very well.
