From my 9th grade and 10th grade I only had Really 2 good teachers that was about their business in a classroom and didn't let the class run over them (Males ). Personally, I feel as if some of the teachers are scared of the kids and let them rule the class. Which is lack of teaching and priority towards the students that are trying to learn. In August 2016 I will be going to the 11th grade do hopefully the classes and teaching styles be better.

People aren't all that nice at my school and the one time they got a bomb threat, they simply sent us outside in the cold, wet weather to the outskirts of the football field instead of something more practical like sending us home. The school nurse is never around when you're likely to need her as she's only there one day a week. No person will really bother outside of calling you names or saying something about what you're wearing or how you look. Oh, and don't bother using those bathrooms unless you REALLY have to go.

The food is marginally downright awful. The breakfast portions are awfully inadequate to the point where you'll still be hungry. It doesn't help that most of the time, the cafeteria runs out of food by the third lunch wave. There are times where some food tastes rather good, but it doesn't change anything. Either bring your own lunch or prepare to lose some pounds from lack of nutrition.
