I really enjoyed the environment that I was placed in. It made it easy for me to make friends, while also balancing the acts of school work. If I could improve anything it would have to be the dedication among students. My reason for this is that students tend to grow uninterested in topics as they age, and I feel as if I would want to change that in order to excite them for their near to distant futures.

The previous college prep counselour was amazing! However, the current counselor, Sylvia Moran, is horrible. She disrespects students and treats them as if they are incapabale of accomplishing anything. She outright refused to help one individual because she did not support the school he chose. She automatically assumes that the students are ignorant and doesn't believe that they are worth her time. The administration has had to bring the former counselor out of her retirement to help this years seniors (my class) because Ms.Moran has no idea what she is doing.
Most teachers do not submit grades on time. Students may ask for their current grade to check how they are doing in the class, but many will say they have not entered assignments. Teaching styles are difficult for a majority of the students. Almost all of my classmates will say they have no idea what the lesson was over. The teachers have an excellent knowledge of the information, but have a difficult time explaining it to the students. Some teachers will encourage their students to continue their education in college, but many will never mention it. The communication skills are very weak. Only a select amount of teachers will have hours for students to receive tutoring before or after school. The only time that is available is during the class period a student assigned.
