1.there aren't many counselors that are able to help students through the school year. 2.most of the students are very rude and disrespectful to the teachers and the few students that actually pay attention in class suffer for it. 3.the school spends more money on prom and football than they do on textbooks and school computers. 4.the students don't get a heck of a lot of choices as to what classes that they want to take. And the ones that are classified as required classes are exceptionally bad. 5.some teachers will talk to students as if they were talking to an elementary school student. In summation, worst school that I have been to for my last year. And I am so glad that it was only one year and not the entire 4.
