This school doesn't teach students how to learn, it teaches them how to cheat and get by, the CSI system is actually a braindead idea (let's hold a kid back even more instead of letting them get better) shoving kids in a room for hours without anything to do just for forgetting to wear an ID. This is a prison for kids, no windows at all, it feels like you're stuck in a concrete box for half of the day, and it feels like an authoritarian dictatorship. The only saving grace is the dual enrollment program, gets you out of that hell-hole for a while every day.Overall, pretty easy school if you want a good GPA to get into a college easily, but you won't learn Removed because they don't teach you how to learn optimally or efficiently. Also, advisors are pretty much useless.
