I took my daughter on a tour when she was a junior. I wanted her to appreciate the academic classes that she was receiving at her current school. When they asked me what classes she was currently taking, I had to explain to them what an AP class was as they assumed that I was referring to a simple honors curriculum. I was told that she would have to do dual enrollment to get the same type of classes. My daughter was not impressed in the least when she saw an obvious lack of rigorous academic, language, and fine art curriculum as well a lack of student diversity. As an educator, I found this disturbing. As a former student, I was not surprised. As a parent, I would not send my children there. They deserve better. They deserve an environment rich in academics, language, and diversity, not one that is biased and ill-prepared to meet my child's needs. I can say this much, the school system did offer a trade school rich in technical instruction while I was there.
