On Overall Experience: Our school has a great curriculum and a lot of students do end up graduating and going to college, the only thing is that some of the students aren't genuine I guess. One minute they're your friend and the next minute they look at you like they've never seen you before.

On Teachers: The teachers do not care whatsoever about how effective their teaching styles are, or how much a student can retain information. Since the teachers are paid based on how well a student does in their class, a teacher will provide the most they can, and make tests easier to ensure a student gets a good grade resulting in a better pay.

On Extracurriculars: There could be a wider variety of clubs for specialized interests, and more effort could be put into them.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: The dress code policy is rarely enforced as girls are constantly walking around the school in shorts that could actually be underwear.
