Not many opportunities, food is not great, we don't have much diversity, and we don't show much academic achievement. But in good news almost anyone can pass, and most teachers are kind and welcoming. Most students do wish there was more things to do, student involvement wise.

I enjoy my high school. It supports many activities and cares about the success as a student. We even got personal laptops for the year. Decent lunches, friendly teachers, and a hard-working staff.
Overall my experience is average to below average. Our school has been on a probationary period due to students state test scores being so low. This is still an ongoing struggle for the school. I feel that many of the teachers want every student to fit into the "cookie cutter" way that they want to teach. While I understand that they have many students and little time, not every student fits into that mold that they want to teach in and when you are one that doesn't you struggle and you fall through the cracks.
