My school is pretty good as far as schools go. We had some problems last year, but since then we have gotten a lot better overall. I'm a junior there now, and there are a lot of good classes to take considering you can take college classes for free and get credit for college with them, including AP classes which can also give college credit. I would say its a nice place to go for school considering the teachers we have are great, and you will learn so much from them as well.

This is a Terrible school. I started at this school my junior year and I've had a horrible experience. The teachers only care about you passing a regents exam so that they can get a rasie, they don't care about the students at all. The other students in the school are awful and will make up anything about you just because you're an outsider. The guidence counlors don't help and theres a fight almost every day. Also the janitors don't keep the school clean and it smell like cigarette smoke. It isn't a healthy learning environment and I never feel safe or taken care of.
