While the school itself did a fine enough job getting students from freshman to graduation, it did so with minimum effort. For every extraordinary teacher, you would have ones who did not care about their job, nor their students. It would not be a surprise to find out your teacher has been replaced with either a substitute or multiple substitutes for the rest of the year making it near impossible to pass exams with good grades.
I like that the student government(ASB) of our school tries their best at getting everyone involved in school activities, such as spirit week or student rallies. I would like to see a change in the way we enter the school. At the beginning of the school the staff always says that we must have our IDs before entering, however, over the past two months the IDs have only been checked once, which I believe is not a good thing. I think that security should be checking IDs everyday to ensure even more safety at our school.
