High School Senior

On Health & Safety: There is a lot of drugs and narcotics roaming around. It is not necessarily in the school building or property, but it is very close to the school.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: The Administration is always firing and hiring new teachers which makes it hard on students to not only find recommendation letters but to for a bond with some of their teachers. Also, new teachers have difficult time to teach at such a high level.

High School Senior

On Academics: Our school offers a wide range of AP Courses. They have made it mandatory for every student to take at least one AP course before they graduate, claiming that this is for our own good. In reality, you don't really need to. This is just to make the school look better.

High School Senior

On Resources & Facilities: The school holds tutoring sessions for students who want or need them every day of the week except Friday. Some teachers are lenient about after-school teaching, but others aren't helpful at all.

High School Senior

On Administration & Policies: The school will confiscate electronic devices even if they see an outline of it. To be honest, I have never seen the principal. The guidance counselors are helpful once you get to know them.
