Telstar High School isn't great. In fact, it's pretty bad. Not very many people care about their education. The teachers try their hardest though. And it's relatively easy to succeed.

Telstar is a small school, based in a small community. As a whole, and at first glance, this school is limited in resources and in opportunity. However, upon a closer look, if a student applies themself, they can be successful. This is because of the fact that there are so many opportunities outside of the classroom, great athletics, and teachers who genuinely want to see their students succeed. It's often hard to see opportunities, but through networking, and being open to trying anything, so much can be achieved. Where Telstar lacks in various areas, it makes up for it through the teachers, the athletics, and the clubs that take place at the school.
If you are willing to push for your classes, it can be a great school. However, students who are not self-motivated will find themselves falling behind. Some of the teachers are excellent while others are average. Your experience will also depend on your peers because many will be disruptive and rude in the classroom.
