On Academics: They have some good teachers and some bad teachers

High School Senior

On Academics: The school is not in the best condition and is very compressed, which can lead to a limited learning process. However, the teachers and administrators do the best that they can to accommodate the students.

On Academics: at my school we offer a lot of Ap and Honor classes. So by the time graduation comes we have more credits than we really need.

On Academics: There are two pathways that a student can choose: art or computer science. I do not think that a student can easily change his or her schedule from requesting from the counselor. It is difficult, and I've heard a lot about students who stress and struggle with the inability of changing courses. If a student is put into AP and cannot juggle the workload, they cannot leave the AP to go into honors or regular. They are stuck with that course.

On Academics: Students are offered Ap courses. All classes are considered honors courses. Counselors start students on certain educational tracks requiringeach student to take certain classes to develop their skills.
