There are many bright and talented students at this school who cannot reach their full academic potential due to normalized deviances from the school's academic curriculum and support services . Furthermore, the non-bias approach to filling AP courses often leaves students unable to learn because of the distractions by students who don't want to be in these classes and are misbehaving to draw attention to themselves; faculty are often put in unsafe situations as well when they jump in to break up fights in the classroom. Consequently, these standardized issues have impeded academic performance as demonstrated by the student's low SAT and AP scores. On another note, I'm not sure how the administration expects high academic performance form its students when they offer food options that aren't nutritional or edible. Lastly, the administration needs to focus on improving its facilities, meanwhile offering more AP courses for students outside of the STEM track.

The school is quite nice, though the food isn’t the best. Sometimes the pasta is served raw sometimes as the meat is too. They try to fit the high school with the new 8th graders though this causes there to be not a lot of space. The 8th graders are able to use iPads for their math class and in the 8th grade science coding class they bought a new large robot thing. Its clear the teachers care but the students don’t. Students who are put in honors but don’t have the behavior of it really ruin the learning experience. The school isn’t really at fault though.
Before New Mission moved to Hyde park it was a very small school with only one long hallway, and I loved that because everyone was close. It built a family, everyone knew everyone. The only thing the school really lacked was diversity to say the least, only two white kids attended and they were brother and sister. All staff and students were black. It was like the HBCU of High schools.
