It's ok. I have a lot of friends that go here, so I don't want to move away, but if I didn't have my friends I'd want to leave. The food could be worse, but it's not very good, hopefully they'll change that soon. We're not very good at sports, but that's the athlete's fault. Most teammates don't know how to work together. I don't feel I'm anyway ready for college. The school is very small, which the teachers say is supposed to give us more opportunities, but I don't think we really have more. We don't really have any clubs or activities other then sports and band/choir. We don't even have acting. I like some of the teachers we are very good at their job, but a few of them are extremely unqualified. I feel like most of the people here aren't ready to go into the real world because they're either unqualified or have no determination to put forth. A lot of people don't even try in school, and I'm sick of it. Why don't they want to do something productive with their lives.
My school how both pros and cons. It's a small school so there is a lot of verbal bulling because everyone knows everything about you. For the most part, about half of our teachers are worthy of their jobs. The ones that are good, it is definitely worth taking their classes. The only other problem is that administration favors you because of who you are or aren't.
