    Overall Experience: My overall experience at this school was not a very good one. We were hardly ever allowed to leave class for any reason. If you had to use the restroom you had to wait until the bell rang to change classes and you had only 5 minutes to get to class. Therefore, you were most likely late to class. The teacher didn't care that you had to take care of a perfectly normal personal need you would still receive a tardy. I was told by one of my teachers that the administrators had told all of the teachers to never let us out. It was almost as if no one expected us to have any personal emergencies. We started one of the school years off by having 20 minute breaks before or after lunch but they quickly put a stop to this because of discipline problems. There very little social time at this school even during lunch. We were forced to sit at our teachers assigned table and eat with our class. If you had any friends that were not in the same class as you then you were out of luck. I went to this school for four years and stayed very depressed the entire time. I was genuinely not happy here because there was no freedom. There were no warm smiles or welcoming greetings. The teachers looked like they didn't want to show up for work and the kids didn't want to show up for school. Everyone was unhappy. They didn't allow kids to be kids. I have very few good memories to look back on from high-school and I spent a lot of time having regrets. I thought if my parents would've moved to another place when I would've been better off. I was looking at all these other high schools around the United States that made learning fun and I wanted to be apart of it. This school is unique because it is the only school in this town that treats the students this horrible. Even though, a very good friend of mine is currently in his senior year there and I miss talking to him everyday I wouldn't want to go back. I'm so happy I graduated from high school.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers at this school are very stressed and over-worked. I would never choose to see any of them after class nor would I ask for help during class. I always felt as if I was on my own when it came to academic instruction and any time I needed help I would ask other students or struggle and eventually figure it out myself. The teaching style of many of these teachers was complicated and hard to understand. They had the knowledge but had no clue how to get it across to the students. Many teachers had little respect for the students and showed no interest in them. This does not apply to all of the teachers because there were some of them that genuinely tried to help but it was very rare that I would get one of these teachers on my schedule.
