What I liked about this high school was they lay-out of the building. All of the classes for specific subjects were grouped together. Even though it was roughly a decent sized school, you always knew where your classes were the new year because it would be in the same area that your language arts class was in last year. Something I would change about this school though is that they released all of the students from every classroom and every grade at the same exact time. This made the hallways so crowded that you could hardly get down the stairways. I would like to see them find a way to release maybe an individual grade level to free up the hallways a little bit more.
This school is okay I guess. There are some very shady things going on with the faculty, and they haven’t made any effort to explain the situation to make us feel safer. Also, this school is definitely not big enough for all of its students, and walking through the hallways can be very stressful. All in all, there isn’t anything extraordinary about this school.
