Some of the academics are good (History, some of the science classes, and some of the English classes). Overall it's in a safe area and definitely could be worse. That being said, practically every year (3 out of 4 years) there has been some weird event or hate crime. Other than that, the school somehow runs even though our principal is rumored to be pocketing all of the money the institution receives, which I absolutely believe. The teachers that are good at their job are the minority, the rest of them are tenured, insensitive, and horrible at teaching and nothing is done about it.
