    Student Culture & Diversity: There is peer pressure often. People who are part of the LGBT community are not accepted among the widespread population. Other faiths than christianity are not welcomed easily. Student involvement is average. There are not too many clubs but they are working on it.

    Academics: The school does not have many options and many students are forced to take the same classes because there are not enough resources to offer many classes. Students are often treated as just a number with the exception of a few teachers. Politics run pretty much everything. There is no money. The school is often underkept and there are often mice and bugs

    Overall Experience: I say my school is the best because there are very memorable things at the school. There are people that doesn't care for the school but when they are away they miss it. I would change schools just to see how the other schools was but other than that I wouldn't change my school. The football and basketball games are so much fun with friends, especially the rival and rain games.

    Teachers: The teachers at my school do not really be behind in grading. It seems like the regular teachers doesn't teach the class for real. They just seem to let the students get by easily. Advanced classes actually teaches the students and help them learn material. Pre-Ap and Ap classes teaches the children aswell and they work fast paced on it too. Some teaching styles are the same like the PowerPoint slides with notes and barely any explaining on each slide. But in my classes (which is advanced), it's not like that it's the total opposite.
