I am a sophomore and were about to move. All I have to say is HALLELUJAH! Do not bring your child here! For starters, the guidance counselors are terrible. High schoolers HAVE drama and they have the nerve to say they don't help kids with drama, so they're pretty much useless. Do you care about your child? Well when there is drama at this school, it causes fights. When people get into fights here, they get sent to jail. So who's supposed to help the children with the drama if the guidance counselors say they dont deal with it. Then the assistant principals, I don't see how they think they are over the actual principal, who is actually one of the only decent administrators at the school. For sports, okay so some of them care about grades, but then there are some who don't seem to look at the rule saying you can't have anyone under a 2.5 GPA on the team because I have seen some people on teams with under 2.0's play. Then the saddest of all, the academics. I have never seen such lazy teachers in my whole life, instead of teaching, they'll show you a video, hand you a worksheet and class is over so you can just use your electronics for the next 45 minutes. Also, I don't see why its necessary to have only 4 classes each semester for 90 minutes, if you talk to a professional, the teenage mind cannot pay attention to one thing for 90 straight minutes. I have a whole lot of reasons this school is not good for other reasons too. Let's say we're at lunch, the fast food restaurants are across the street so for those with cars, they can just easily leave off campus. The assistant principals are in charge of not letting them leave but they obviously dont care. Lets talk about dress code, i understand the rules but it should apply to EVERYONE! If somebody with a kind of short skirt gets sent to ISS, a girl with an even shorter skirt should be sent as well. Its called being fair. Now, here's where things get gross, I have never EVER been in a school that's infested with roaches and mice. There are enough janitors, why is the school so dirty. I've seen wasp nests. When I go to practice, people get stung all the time due to all the wasps. I just really do not recommend this school for anyone who can breath air. You can try to go to Jack Britt High or even home school or online school, just don't come here. You will regret it.
