I've only had bad experiences with the staff. I have never done anything to any of them and have only been respectful, and in return I get extremely disrespected. I was told that I am going to have a hard time in the real world, but you're supposed to shape me for that, right? Most of the teachers are great, especially the librarian, but none of the office staff and guidance staff has treated me well in my senior year. I would never send my child here.
