After returning from Australia where I was visiting my father and siblings, I had to return to school to finish out my high school tenure. To ensure that I would graduate on time my mother and I chose to enroll me in Patton high school. While there I met some good friends, and have some good teachers. However, the overall environment was not conducive to a good quality education because of the demographics served. Many of the students seemed to be apathetic to the educational instruction, and a few of the teachers recognized and fed into that mentality. Additionally, because of its fast paced nature, I did not allow for certain subjects to be mastered, and I had to take it upon myself to re-familiarize certain aspects of math and science before enrolling in their college equivalents. While overall I enjoyed my time there, I would not want to go back.

It's nice, teachers are nice, some are questionable but nice. It's not really a good school if you want to go to college
Could be worse. Nice teachers, but the work is way too easy. i haven't learned anything new since coming here.
