The reading levels are unreasonably low and I strongly believe that something either than 'Renaissance' should exist so that students can be rewarded for something other than T-shirts, and other accessories (waste of money, I believe) but what I would call real motivation. For example, the breakfast brunch was alright but not noted; Hold more restriction on sports (grades), offer help (homework help is exceptional but students with more need can come to weekend school, and let's be honest, they'll hate that) more homework review for mistakes, and make the teachers be more in touch with the students. Part of being in school is for education and what is education without motivation from the ones teaching.

Teachers at this school are great but some have their problems. They don't really care about the social life of student. They aren't encouraging when it comes to getting kids to join cubs or extracurricular activities.
