    "My experience at this has been not so great. If my school had more programs for student then I would have had an better experience."

    "As a public school, it didn't receive a lot of funding and therefore had many infrastructure problems. The teachers were also not particularly terrific."

    "There are many advanced placement courses offered in addition to the leveling system already in place. However, students don't really learn much from these courses or retain the information they have learned."

    "Teachers in my school aren't the best in the area, although they do help students as much as they can. Some teachers are way more friendly than others are and care a little more than others."

    "Many teachers simply do not know how to teach; by this, I mean that they simply read words off of a PowerPoint or note sheet and do not offer any elaboration on the topics being covered. Some teachers are also highly inconsistent in grading, such as in more subjective areas like English and history."
