I learned almost nothing about the real world from my high school. One nice thing was that they participate in the PSEO program, so my junior and senior years, I actually attended the local community college for free instead of the high school. I learned about the real world there rather than at my high school. My brother, who is two years older than I am, attended the same high school, and just the other day I had to explain to him what a mortgage was, and in January, I had to help him do his taxes. Because our high school didn't teach him any of that. Everyone needs that knowledge, and Cambridge Isanti High School doesn't provide it.
