Posted September 20, 2013

I went to this school for 9th and 10th grade. It was awful. I don't know if they've changed it since but it was overpacked with students and the teachers had given up. The school was UNACCREDITED, and good teachers were leaving in droves to find other places to teach and the ones who had stayed behind just did not care anymore. I had problems understanding a couple subjects and my teachers always told me they were too busy to help and my geography teacher told me once that it didn't matter if i knew the subject or not because my HS diploma wouldn't count from this place. And there was always constant fighting, and putting up metal detectors and you would find knives and lighters and other weapons littering the sides of the building as kids threw their stuff in the bushes before going through the detectors. I hated that school and was glad I left to go graduate somewhere else. I learned absolutely NOTHING while there and I was actually really smart in Middle School. Luckily my new HS was better and I ended up graduating with a 3.7 GPA. More than what I got at Brunswick since nobody would tutor me or help me when I asked.
