Asbury Park High School
I went to this this school for 4yrs and I think it was a waste of time to be honest when I was at that school, it wasn't a real school. Every single day there was alot of fights, violent, and I didn't feel safe at all being there. Everyday I never knew what was going to be happen, if someone was going to bring a knife or guns to school. Also 95% of the teachers suck. Most of them didn't teach that well and most didn't teach at all. I had to teach myself when I was at the school. I graduate from APHS with no good education, and that is why I had to struggle at alot my 1st yr in college. There wasn't much encouragement at all. And they say No Child Left Behind well i was left behind from going to APHS.
