    Teachers: some teachers are great, but I only really find them teaching AP or Honors classes. The teachers there clearly know a lot about the material and will try to help you. The teachers I've previously had for CP classes treat the students like they are idiots. Some teachers have no idea what they're doing, constantly get distracted, and are afraid to tell kids to be quiet.
