On Student Culture & Diversity: For the most part, you can easily get along with a lot of people. There is a certain group that you can tell think they're better than everyone else which makes people either hate them or love them. Frankly, it makes me mad that there can't just be acceptance of everyone who's there rather than judgmental people throughout.

On Teachers: For the most part, the teaching skills, of the teachers at my school, are pretty good. There are a few teachers, however, that don't like when students ask question or question them at all. They also expect students to know the basics of subjects just being learned which makes the learning harder on students thanks to them not going in depth enough in each subject.

On Administration & Policies: Most of the time, the administration can be good. However, certain people tend to use their authority to their own advantage. These certain people tend to find it enjoyable to get students, who've never been in trouble in their lives, in trouble for nothing in order to make an example out of them for other students who actual deserve the punishments. There comes a point where you want to tell them to grow up and use their authority correctly.

On Academics: When it comes to importance of academics, it's either very important to you or not at all. There is no in between. The kids who take advantage of the learning opportunities get better grades and tend to excel in most everything. However, the kids who don't take it seriously make our school look so much worse than it actual is because they make a joke out of the school and it's reputation.

On Teachers: There are a couple of teachers that go above and beyond what they actually have to do. The teachers explain their grading methods at the begining of the school year so it's easy to understand .Most teachers are interested in the students. The communication is okay at my school.
