A.) Very low budget. Could use more high quality supplies. Class size can be cramped, sometimes students have to stand. Text books are outdated or poor quality. Could afford to have more language classes instead of the typical French or Spanish. Too many study halls, they are never properly used, and it is too loud for homework, and time would be better spent in a class room learning. B.) Sports are high priority, chorus and band come second place, and the fine arts are really lacking. There should be more art classes, as art has been proven to reduce stress and help increase discipline and attention span. C.) Awards aren't given that much, only to those who are very out spoken. Quiet students are frequently ignored. There is a lot of favoritism. D.) Could have a larger space. Lot of disrepair, frequent leaks happen. Gym and library could use a lot of work. Needs an auditorium. E.) Parents could get much more involved, always.
