This school is not so good some of my teachers bully students and make me and some other students feel really uncomfortable but then there is also those great teachers that make my going to school everyday bearable. It could improve first by the administration and the teachers listening to the students and learning from us because some things they say just make no sense, it doesn't matter if they are professionals or not they can never stop learning!

Honestly, i dislike Progreso High School. I believe the students need more disciplinary as well as needing help with math, reading, and science. Thank you.
