All good teachers are moving out from this school because their administrators does not appreciate their sacrifices, thus the students suffer from unorganized instruction given by substitute teachers. CTE classes are awesome and teachers are highly qualified. I would suggest that administrators should take good care of their staff so that the school will not turn into a mess.
Let's start when you first walk in. I come early everyday and end up tardy because of the searching procedure. The line is very long and it moves slowly everyday. Therefore, you're marked tardy unless you're at the very front of the line. Second, there are no teachers. Currently, i have had two substitutes for months with no classwork assigned. I've never been in a school with a lack of teachers. Third, we have no extracurricular activities. No inauguration, no pep rallies, no band or chior, just nothing. I could go on for eons about the instability in this school. As a student, I would NEVER RECOMMEND TO ATTEND THIS SCHOOL.
