Transit has some great aspects such as the gifted and talented program and the few teachers who care, but more often than not you end up with at least one or two teachers that couldn’t care less or aren’t the best at explaining things to middle schoolers. Overall, a forgettable experience (but if you have the chance, spend some time with the GT teacher Mrs. Miranda. She will change your life for the better.)
