    Overall Experience: This school was a typical low income, high rate of Hispanic race which caused this school to not have a great learning system. The students majority did not acre about school and made it tough for teachers to teach everyone because everyone was at very different learning levels. Most teachers did not teach, but rather watch us fail. I felt so unprepared to go to college, which I am struggling to just to be average. That is why I would choose to go to a different school

    Academics: We get a pretty good amount of homework but they only give us that amount because they know our abilities.
