School Reviews

The teachers at this school are either incredible or incredibly undedicated. I have had, in the past two years, one completely dedicated teacher who loves his job, one teacher who loves the subject but not so much teaching, and the rest have been mediocre at best. The homework load is too intense for public school, especially since I don't learn anything in class. There are too many students and it's incredibly clique-y. Mostly, football players hang out with football players and cheerleaders, bandies with bandies, etc. Music is very big here, but mostly only band because the principal's kids were in band. They get more funding than our lacrosse team. The facilities are incredible, of course, and incredibly new. Parents are, hm, fairly involved I suppose. At least, some of them are, whereas others are completely involved.
