    Teachers at Brashear High School: Most teachers teach what needs to be taught. Some don't go out of their way to help out children who don't understand. Some teachers hold interest with the students others just seem like they are their to do a job and leave when the bell rings.

    Overall Experience at CAPA - Creative & Performing Arts: This school teaches you to how to accept the differences in people and how to respect others opinions. Also giving us the view from behind the scenes , from art , music , acting , and writing. It helps you get a better appreciation on the talents that you do and do not have. I enjoyed the art shows and the concerts; as well as the dance performances and the plays. It gives you a phenomenal view on life and how to express yourself.
