I attended this school, and it was singularly responsible for driving me to a Catholic High School (Notre Dame Academy). The teachers were uncaring, unless you were a stellar student or a troublemaker. I was failing math, but received no extra help. Though I was reading on a high school level, I got more reading classes instead of help with math. No one bothered to engage me or make me want to learn--and I lost all confidence in myself. Fortunately, Notre Dame turned things around for me, by expecting that I would learn and engaging me.
