    Teachers: The teachers are very diverse. Some have taught there for most of their lives, while others are fresh out of college. Many of them are approachable and love to help outside of class. Grading depends on the teacher, as does the amount of work required of the students.

    Teachers: Most teachers at this school are wonderful. There are only a select few that either do not know enough about their field to be teaching, are too smart for high school teaching, or think they are right and everyone else is wrong, therefore singling out students and causing problems (especially raised stress levels among students in terms of grades).
