    Teachers: When some children do not know how to act, some teachers do not know how to take control. Most of the teachers are up in the classroom trying to teach the students, but they get distracted because either students are talking or just do not want to listen. Some teachers take a lot of things personal. I haven't had any problems with my grades, but if I did, I would talk to my teacher. The best time to talk to them is after school.

    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular opportunities are taken way more seriously than the actual education. Even the staff takes these activities more seriously.

    Overall Experience: The environment at the school is okay. My favorite experiences would have to be the athletic games because everybody comes together, even people from different schools. This school isn't really unique to me, it's just another typical school. And as far as choosing this school again, I wouldn't.

    Teachers: The teachers don't really care about us as students. They feel as long as they're getting they're check they could care less. But there are some teachers (very little) that genuinely care.
