Montour High School Reviews
There's only like ten cops and they are all probably a little to old to actually do anything in the case of an emergency. They're also unarmed so they really can't do anything. However, the school is so big and has so many exits that if there was ever a shooting your chances of survival would be pretty high. Drug dogs come in about once every nine weeks (four times a year). They're a little too harsh on drugs honestly. One girl got a ten day suspension for having midol in her bag. But at the same time, a kid did OD in the bathroom my freshman year. He lived!
My school has a variety of teachers that ranges from ones that do not care for their students, to ones that deeply care and respect the students, which in return gets them respect. There is only a few teachers at my school who go above and beyond what they have to do to help their students. Most of the teachers just do the bare minimum, and don't truly care about how their students are doing, they just do the exact same thing each year. The grading is very inconsistent with specific teachers. Favoritism is very obvious at my school, which obviously only benefits those who are the favorites. Teachers grade differently depending on who the student is, which is very unfair. Overall, the majority of teachers at my school are beneficial to favorites, and very unbeneficial to those who are not favorited in their class.
I am a senior here and at first when I was a freshman I was timid. However now after all these years I look back to see what got me through. By far I would have to say its the fun teachers such as Mr. Held, Mr. Langman, and Mrs. Olshenske that kept the day interesting and made me look forward to tomorrow.
