    Overall Experience: I think that my high school was pretty good as high schools go. I think that the thing that was the worst was that the atmosphere of the school just wasn't that great.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers at my school were very knowledgeable and happy to teach you each and everyday. A few teachers were still nice but I felt like they fell flat as teachers as they were not the best at actually teaching the material that we were expected to learn.

    Overall Experience: I wasn't challenged enough. I enjoyed being involved with clubs, but a lot of the kids at this school got a little bit out of control.
