Administration & Policies:
Crude and authoritarian, although it was beginning to improve slightly in my senior year with a new principal. But the one before him was openly abrasive towards most students, while dotting on her "favorites", who was any athlete or student who brought attention to the school. The dress code was dated and viciously sexist. Suspension was the preferred mode of punishment, pushing out the people who needed help most, likely causing many to drop out. Ironically this was a punishment often used to punish skipping (way to give the kids what they want!). A very irrational, uncaring, and lazy administrative leadersip.
The office staff and guidance counselors however, were generally genial, knowledgeable, and helpful.
