This school isn't as bad as everyone might say it is. The teachers actually care and offer after school tutoring and redoes on tests. There are also accelerated classes now. The school is actually trying to change for the better. Negitive comments usually come from the kids causing the problems or kids with bad grades. The only bad thing about this school is the behavior of some students, but like every school there will always be kids trying to distract others. The only reason there is distracting children is because of the school system in America. In High School there is no more recess just lunch. That can cause a big problem in teens or kids (especially males) because we then don't have any way to release that energy causing us to get easily distracted and bored. Also the teachers are not here for money, because just recently the teachers got a big cut on their paycheck and they are still here supporting us. Meaning they do care and want the best for us.
