School Reviews

2  
A - Students are bored with the material lectured or presented, cannot relate to real life. B -Extracurricular activities are plentiful and many exceed if the parents have the money to buy their child's way in. Otherwise you are just average or don't make the team. C - If you do a lot of work on your child's part there are many scholarships available. Make many requests to the counselors and they may eventually help you or might right a letter or recommendation. D - Run down at the best and under construction during the school year. In the process of building new high school. E - You receive notice of issues long after it is too late, STI home (to check grades online) is not updated on a regular basis by the teacher so parents are not aware of any problem until an email or call from the teacher or school some five weeks later. Over all the school is trying to hard to be like Hoover, Mt Brook and Vestavia. The student body is doing more drugs and dropping out due to the increased stress. A senior is expected to take 8 periods and stay till 3:00 like any other student.
