School Reviews

The education is meh; I hardly have to try, other than in science and advanced math. The majority of the teachers are really nice and make the class entertaining. However, every year, there's been one or two bad teachers (advanced math teacher doesn't change, so for me, it's one or two out of 3), but I've heard the normal math teachers being nice. The last of a good education is shown with teachers saying things that make no sense-saying things such as not being based on facts and is based on facts is the same thing, and that switching to the way high school does it-without teams-would cause jobs to be lost. Speaking of which, the school has 3 teams per grade, and each team has different teachers, and different periods to go to the extra classes (gym, library, etc.).
