    "Many of the teachers don't care about the students. We are given work that rarely everyone knows how to do. Instead of teaching, the teachers text on their phones!"

    "My experience personally was pretty good. I was lucky to get amazing teachers and eventually fell in love with a subject that paved my way into college. It is very diverse. We have an amazing sports program. We have an amazing arts program. It was nice seeing students be exposed to so many different things. It started falling apart when we received a new principle. It was extremely better and more well ran when Mr. Giles was in charge. But it'll be a journey to see where it goes from here."

    "Capital is a great place to be if you play football or are good at any type of preforming arts. That's basically what everyone cares about."

    "I would like to see change in the fact that the administration comes in and changes the schedule to where the whole school has 1 lunch time together and then they complain that it is too loud. In the 4 years that I have been in this school, there has been only 2 years that remained the same."

    "Capital high school is an amazing school. What I liked mostly about it is the diversity. Everyone there is diffrent, but thats what makes us so strong. At Capital your diffrences are put aside and you are judged by the person you are. You are judged by how yoy treat yourself and others. You can't beat a school that doesnt judge you by the color of your skin."
