Outdated policies, terrible food services, a bully friendly environment and the lack of motivation from other students repulses me in such a way that it's necessary I force myself to attend. While it's seemingly a better option than a lot of schools in the surrounding area, that's not saying much. One thing that can definitely be vouched for, however, are some select staff members. Some will, on their own time, stay after and tutor a student if they're particularly lacking understanding or ability. These teachers genuinely care and should be heeded with the utmost respect. Although, unfortunately, there are some others that (in my experience) portray themselves as rather uncaring or oblivious figures, and 'teach' for the simple matter of collecting a paycheck. Another plus is that the selection of courses is undoubtedly improving. Multiple new classes were added just this year, including (but not limited to) a new AP course, and the incredibly alluring Military History of which I'm looking forward to. However, despite these qualities, the circumstances of attending still looks unfavorable. I would venture to seek a more opportune school.
