School Reviews

I am a sophomore in the IB program, and I love it here! This school is what you make of it, and you have to put in hard work to get back satisfying results.

The students at this school are a joke. All they want to do is slide by with a D or C and hang out with their friends, skip class, and sell things to eachother. It starts as simple candy sales. Buy packs of candy fro a local Walmart and sell them to students. But othes sell illegal drugs on cmpus! The teachers are joke. Some spend 25% of the classtime actually teaching while the rest of the time s devoted to talking o a movie everyday! Especially one teacher, Mrs. Vicky Armstrong. She is a racist teacher who spent all day talking. If one student had their phone out, if they're back, they get a warning to ut it away. But if she didnt like them, she confiscated it the first time with no warning! She even allowed one of her students to talk on the phone and have a conversation right in the middle of class! She spends all of her time sitting behind a desk. Her Level 2 class makes the lesson for Level 1 while she sits back and do nothing. She lets students who are not in her class walk in and spend time they should be in their own clsses learning! It is a wonder why he is still working at school for such conduct.
