The administration at Bethel Park is a complete and total bureaucracy. They only care about what is convenient for them, not for the students themselves. Teachers who actually care are few and far between. It seems like no one cares about anything except football, which gives the football players big heads and makes them think they can get away with murder. Most of the students are disrespectful, trashy, and don't care about their education.
