    "Many of the core classes are taught by experienced and passionate teachers, but the non-athletic extra-curricular classes were disregarded by the administration and given less ability to grow through budget cuts."

    "Some of the teachers were very supportive, and went above and beyond to do their jobs, but many teachers put little to no effort into teaching, grading, or explaining lessons."

    "My math teacher Mrs. Benson; has pushed me to take Pre-Calculus in the 12th grade. She taught by solving the problem as examples. Her knowledge on math is on point and she has a lot of patience. She is always willing to give her time after school if you need help on homework or if you need tutoring. Mrs Benson pushed me to take math all four years of high school, every school year and every summer 3 years after graduating high school. Math is my weakest subject and it feels great to have completed my math credits for a bachelors degree. she always communicated if she was available after school. She was always willing to show you how she broke down her grading and scoring."

    "Not a ton of racial diversity, but the GSA is fairly prominent and students are generally accepting despite racial/cultural/political differences."

    "Some good some are bad. There are a few great teachers but most of them are mediocre and some are pretty bad at teaching and grading."
