Seeing Friends is what makes school awesome. School gives you an excuse to hang out and socialize with your friends. And best of all in school (Unless none of your friends go to your school, or have no friends in school) you get to see your friends 5 days a week for 9 months. It's awesome! Now yes you can see your friends on the weekends, but not for 7 hours. And also what about the friends that you can only see at school. Plus you can't hang out with all of your friends over the weekend, but you can at school. Library and Fave subjects are a close 2nd and 3rd
Review Lanier Senior High School
The quality of the teachers is very diverse. You have a few who actually who to see the students excel, whereas other teachers are simply doing it for a check. Some of the teachers even have little to no knowledge about the subject area in which they are teaching because there is always a student there to clear up errors of the teacher. Although the English department is very strong with few of them possessing a lot of knowledge about writing skills. The foreign language teacher is one the best. She is consistent with grading and always available to help students who are not grasping the information. In retrospect, it starts with the head of the school being the principal. The school lacks consistency with keeping one. The principal is forever changing from year demonstrating bad leadership within the school because students or parents do not have anyone they can refer themselves to in a time of need.
In my opinion, every teacher has a different personality. Sometimes I feel like students are being somewhat cheated out of a true education because we have those kind of teachers who are lazy and just wants to make sure they promote students to the next grade level when they're not truly ready. I can't blame the teachers as much either, I also blame the students for not taking their education seriously. The teacher's job is to teach and meet certain criteria, it's the students job to come to school, maintain a good attitude, and learn.
