I would choose the participate in this school again because the effort and progression that the teachers and other staff put into the school itself and the students.

My experience with this school has never been for me. I have not enjoyed it because the environment has always been culturally opposite to what I was used o before attending this school. Also, parental involvement and the dedication of staff has always been poor for every other program besides programs such as the football team. This leaves those who put an extreme amount of time into those programs without help alone to face an excess of the workload to improve the experience for the students.

The school has a very good education program, but lacks the motivation to make the students want to go to school and get their education. Parents do not get involved with their kids and most students are trouble makers.
