Pope High School is an excellent school. It prepares students for the skills necessary to succeed at college. Over 80% of students go on to 4-year institutions, and the average SAT for 2018 was over 1200. An excellent school with multiple state playoff appearances in sports yearly, from Volleyball, to Lacrosse, Basketball, Softball, Baseball, Swim and Dive, and Cross Country. The only thing missing is the lack of AP courses. This is a hindrance in giving students the ability to boost their GPA, and makes it impossible for students not in the Academies to become Valedictorian, or even compete. Luckily, this is an issue the school has been addressing. Another glaring issue is the workload, as I have no experience with other schools, this many be an endemic nationally. Regardless, the workload is extreme, causing many students to struggle to keep up. The majority of teachers are excellent and show profound respect for students, however: just like all schools there are a few rotten apples

A very comfortable environment with great teachers and facilities that enable me to get the most out of my education. With a wide range of classes any student can challenge themselves or take the classes they are comfortable with and succeed. The entire staff here wants you to be successful and do a great job of making sure that the campus is kept safe and clean, making sure students are given the best facilities possible to learn in. The level of difficulty and commitment required prepares you for what comes after school and makes sure you graduate with the needed knowledge.
Too much stress and expectation is put on students to succeed. Much of my childhood was lost because of the homework assignments. We are still teenagers and need to have a life outside of school. While the cafeteria food has more variety than middle school, the quality is worse. Too much emphasis is placed on sports, especially football and basketball. Those players should not get special treatment just because the sports bring in money. The art programs should not suffer at sports expense. I wish even a little of the money that was spent on sports went to new cleaner bathrooms and textbooks that aren't 20 years old. I do feel that the academics are top notch and have prepared me for college.
