While there are always exceptions, most of the teachers at my school do just a hair above the bare minimal. This is especially prevalent with teachers that have less challenging classes and the freshman. Teachers had no given authority over the students which lead to class often being unruly. This discouraged many teachers from continuing to try and hurt the few students that were there to increase their knowledge. In most of the AP classes offered, teachers put in more effort, but several of the teachers didn't have adequate understanding of their subject to be able to teach it.
