    "I originally lived in Texas where, in schools, education was taken very seriously and all other activities, while important, came after the actual learning. For example, if you were a football player and you were failing even one class, your coach required you to bring your grade up or at least start getting help from a teacher in order to play. In Ponca City High School however, the story was very different. Coaches didn't expect the players to get good grades. If they were failing, the coaches talked to the teachers and would get the players "extra credit" in order to bump their grades up. The rest of the students did not get these "extra credit" opportunities. The whole school experience was so sports focused that they cut the drama club, the one organization that I would have cared to be a member of, in order to have the budget to buy new turf for the football field. They had already replaced the field a year or so before that. Every principle that school had had was previously a football coach, not an academic educator, not a counselor, or someone who cared if the students were failing their classes. I had never seen so many failing grades, so many kids skipping class to smoke or drink, so many teachers not caring about education before in my life. This school was and likely still is a disgrace to the educational system."

    "Out of all the teachers that I have had throughout my school years, these teachers were the worst. With the exception of a select few who actually cared about their students and wanted to provide an education for us, most of the teachers were only concerned with not having kids fail their classes. They focused on the students who were struggling and got them caught up while neglecting the rest of the class. While I understand the need to help those students, I do not believe it was fair or right of them to completely stop teaching new material for weeks at a time simply because one or two students did not understand. There are better ways to go about helping those who are struggling, but that would take more effort on the teachers part and that was not acceptable to them. Besides when the students were struggling, the teachers had no regard for the students behavior during class. Students were disruptive and unwilling to let those of us who actually wanted to learn focus on the class. The teachers did absolutely nothing to maintain order in the classroom and did not command any sort of respect from the students. There was no discipline of any sort and those who were in "athletics" were given more attention and leverage than those of us who actually participated in the classes and cared to get an education."

    "While some students at this school are accepting of others there are very few who actually care to befriend anyone outside of their "groups." Bullying is a constant problem for anyone who is not a part of the bigger groups.Students mostly don't care about learning or bettering themselves. The main focus of the students seems to be sports, dating, partying, and gossip."

    "I learned more in one year at my Texas high school than I did in the three years at Ponca City High School. They do not prepare you for college at all. They focus on getting you to barely pass the class and do fairly well on the EOI's and that is if the teacher applies his/herself to actually teaching. It was so bad that in my sophomore year I, who was merely average in Texas, was one of the best students, with the highest grades in the whole school including the higher grades. This fact disturbs me and disgusts me to this day. It made me lazy and unprepared for college because for the three years prior to graduation I didn't have to study or work hard to ace any of my classes."

    "The teachers knew when the students were struggling with the curriculum and found adequate ways to give the students a better understanding of the lesson. They taught fun and interactive lessons that can be thought back on for years and can be useful in the future."
