School Reviews

The school is not that bad, but some teachers and students ruin it. The facilities are run down and old, there are rarely any materials for the students, no paper rolls in the bathrooms or soap. The teachers participate in gossip and some of them even turn a blind eye to the bullying that happens in front of them. They also impose their beliefs on the students specially the director and one of the Spanish teachers, they do this even though they are not supposed to force their Christianity onto the students. They force them to stand up and pray when doing events and if they don't they are flagged as a bad kid; some teachers even give you more assignments as punishment, specially the Spanish teacher from 12 grade, she forced students to write essays about why some behaviors were wrong and why they should be sorry even though it was only one student displaying that behavior, still everyone got another assignment they didn't need to do just because she could not keep under control that one student. Other than all these things mentioned before I would like to mention some good personnel from that school; those being the English teacher for 12 grade and the librarian. They were both very nice people who did their best with what little they were given.
