    "The teachers at my school are pretty cool. They are understanding individuals who do their best to help students out they're lively and like to engage with students, none I have to complain about."

    "A lot of teachers play favorites and cater to only a small few students. They grade based on how much they like certain students. Some students get free passes and can get away with missing assignments and tardiness. Teachers also aren't very helpful. They are in a hurry to leave extra help early and barely aid students that attend. If you don't understand something, teachers say well we went over this in class so it should be in your notes instead of reiterating the lesson to help students understand. Some teachers take an extremely long time to give back students' assignments. A lot of teachers are not at all engaging s several students, who are otherwise very attentive in class, have trouble staying awake. Teachers provide little chances for students to boost their grades and are often very nitpicky in grading assignments. A classmate of mine once got 2 points taken off her english essay because the teacher said that her paragraphs were not the same length and did not have an equal number of sentences in each paragraph."

    "The school has no structure. A lot of the school policies do not make sense. There's a rule stating that even if you have a free period but enter the library you are stuck in the library for the entire period even if you only needed to quickly print out an assignment. Also, the school mandates that once you leave the building during a lunch period you may not reenter until the next period. So if you forgot something important, they will not let you back in and make you wait outside. They call it a "safety measure" even if you were obviously just in the school a minute ago and have an ID therefore you cannot be some intruder. The clubs are mostly student run and poorly conducted. All clubs ever discuss is preparing for the next bake sale. The cleanliness and quality of the building is also very poor. There are stalls that do not lock and hand-dryers that do not work. Yet, the school does nothing to repair them. The athletics department criticizes students for coming five minutes late for attending extra help or a review session, thus discouraging academic behavior. Coaches only make sure that the student is not failing, not if he/she is trying to do more than just pass a course, but to ace it. The students at this school are often very rude to each other. They constantly find ways to tear others down whether verbally or physically, and have no regard for another's feelings."

    "The teachers are very helping and care for the students. Although we aren't able to go on field trips every year, the school tries hard to make sure the students have a great high school experience."
