My math teacher in High school was the best i have ever had, much better than any of my college math teachers. She took the time to help me and other students when we were struggling and explained concepts in a way that i believe anyone could understand. My English teacher during my senior year was very great as well. She taught in a more professional "college professor-ish" way and made us think outside of the box in a way no other teacher had before. To summarize it all, there is at least 2 teachers in each department that are absolutely excellent.

This school is alright. That's really the best I can say. The teachers, when you are lucky, care about the students but most just want you to pass the class and get out. Without necessarily learning anything. The administration is outdated and an overall joke. The students don't respect the non-teacher faculty because of how they are treated. Sports is god and everything else is background. Decent education all things considered though. Grounds, when not being under constant construction, are also not bad.

The students and faculty are generally friendly, and quite a few faculty members care about individual students. However there are a large number of teachers who only care about making sure their test scores meet the expected goals. As a result some teachers curve test scores instead of making sure the students understand the material. A lot of important information gets glossed over in some of the classes. There are a few teachers who are passionate about their jobs, and thanks to them (Mr Motley, Ms Hubbard) I had a few useful study habits that have been useful in college.
