    Teachers: There are some teachers that can be rigorous and push the students but some of the teachers let a student fly by without doing a thing.

    Teachers: Majority of the time the teachers are lackluster in their teaching and are very lenient. Even the AP courses aren't that hard. Some of the teachers are good but they are not excellent. Everyone knows what to take when selecting classes because everyone knows who is a lackluster teacher and what are the blow off classes. I've only had 2 somewhat but barely challenging teachers but they were sub-par at best.

    Teachers: There are teachers that are willing to teach while others just don't care. For the main part, I was able to learn enough to do decently well in school.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers at my school are very helpful to students when it comes understanding a lesson. The teachers try their best to help all students even the ones who are "slackers". There are a few teachers who teach a class at a fast pace and do not spend the time to ask the students if they are comprehending the lesson. As for grading, some teachers do not offer extra credit to bring up a grade while others offer extra credit every six weeks.
