The teacher-student interactions are great for the most part. There are only a couple of teachers that don't appreciate student connections. some of the best teachers are retiring this year (2018). Most of the students get along pretty well the only people that the students don't really get along with are the people who moved here that are city folk that have liberal views and that alo think that they are the center of the universe. The school lunches used to be good until Michelle Obama encouraged the healthy school lunch program. Also, the proficiency-based learning is very inefficient and hard to understand for both parents and students.

Peoples Academy is a nice school but like many other schools it struggles with social biases and bullying. It is very acceptive of the LGBTQ community and offers a large array of support for those who are so but tend to struggle in supporting the average student. They offer a large amount of classes but their arts department is lacking, they prefer to teach STEM students so if you are artistic you have to go into dual enrollment to pursue your passion. Their Guidance office is unorganized and they struggle to effectively support seniors heading of to college find colleges that teach their passion and find financial aid. It is a great school for the average student but if you struggle with disabilities or are different than what is expected of a student you are bound to have difficulties. Overall it is perfect for the average student.
Besides the typical immature behavior and dramatic involvement that commonly comes from teenagers, Peoples Academy is a great school. There's always going to be something to complain about, mostly because people are so opinionated now. My only complaint would be the classes, but that's not a problem with Peoples Academy, it's a problem with the educational system as a whole.
