Some teachers don't seem to notice that students' have more to their daily life than that class. Most students try to take all the challenging courses while juggling multiple extracurricular activities.
This school is ok. The big problem with me is the teachers. There seems to be a big difference in grades just by the teachers that the students have which is very sad. The teachers' way of teaching and their attitude can be either very encouraging or make the kids cry because it affects their grades and attitude towards the subject Also, as a busy students the tutorials do not help and I cannot attend them. I had a very bad biology teacher my freshman year and that ruined my attitude towards biology and my thoughts about teachers. Overall, the school is very nice and organized. The school tries hard to provide the best for the students. But the teachers are a huge issue. I would have never had thought that a teacher could make me cry because I could not have possibly have done anything about it. You can only change your teacher if you change from may ap or pre ap to a lower class which is not what most students want to do. I had a pre ap biology teacher that had no textbook ( she gave us an online textbook from the discovery channel that did not help us), no materials on her web page, no website, no nothing. simply just powerpoints, labs without really giving instructions, and notes that we took in class over the powerpoints. So we had almost no material and her excuse was that she was getting us ready for college....which was stupid.... A lot of parents emailed complaints to her which still did nothing to benefit the students. My mom hated this teacher and asked me what her deal was. Anyway, all the kids dread for some teachers and some scream of joy for others at the beginning of the year. It is depressing and stressful. The teachers are either just bad at teaching or good at teaching or the teachers are just mean. Either way, the school does not do something about it, even though I am pretty sure that they get calls from parents and that the students are unhappy. This overall problem stresses the students and the parents and this really dictates the students grades. Nonetheless, the school is great with many clubs, sports, and other organization, especially the band! This year the band is going to grand national championships~ and many other sports teams and fine arts organizations are doing great!
