It's better than some schools, but it needs a lot of work. There are a lot of things that could be better like having water that kids felt safe drinking, and having better administration, and communication. This school fails to communicate pretty much everything that is going on and the kids who go here are not proud of pretty much anything this school has to offer. The only thing that helps this school do as good as it is doing is their IB courses and even then the children are struggling to do well in the courses and lack preparedness for college

My school, Thomas Jefferson, is a good school because of the resources we have. For example, the future center, technical center, etc. I would like if the students were more positive and helped each other instead of being against one another.
I currently still attend the high school and I love the people that I am surrounded with and being apart of the IB program has allowed me to encounter many opportunities; however, the school lunches could be a little healthier.
