"Teachers here come from all over the spectrum- the mathematics department head is massively intelligent, yet she shares her room with the 'hated' biology/APES teacher. The AP World History teacher is, as I would put it, "pseudo-smart"... he would usually start off a given class with a session of discussing trivia that we had newly informed him about. However, when he lectured us about the topic we were on, he seemed to not fully understand it; for example, he attempted to discuss political leniency, but used incorrect terminology, poor explanations of the political spectrum, and could not answer questions about how this knowledge related to any other topic (reasonably). The PLTW department is very bad, but that is likely an effect of being the most popular 'carrer/college prep' track. The Agriculture department has very nice field facilities, but only one experienced teacher. The other one is a new hire from Purdue, and seems to be very lacking in the classes that I have had with her. I guess that the science department(s) is/are okay. The classes include: ICP, Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Space Science, Physics, Psychology, AP Environmental Science, and Anatomy and Physiology. These teachers are really just hit and miss. I would say that there is a 1:1 ratio for good and bad teachers here, with an exaggeration on both sides of the spectrum. I don't know a lot about the Social Studies department. Most of these students are girls that really don't care about their education, combined with teachers that are, bluntly, the college-student-that-doesn't-understand-anything-but-thinks-they're-smart-stereotype. They teach history, geography, and economics. The Business department is better than Social Studies. All the teachers are basically failed business majors- the worst kind of academic. They pretend that their classes will help you in your future, that they are great complimentary classes, and that they are say-all end-all. Naturally, I hate all these teachers."
