Fels Samuel High School Reviews
Samuel fels is very bad.
First problem is the teachers, there are few very good ones but others are below average. They can't seem to control the class or teach very well. I personally can understand it but many others don't.
There is very little homework and projects, nor is there much classwork. In some classes, we learn the same thing for a week or two.
Though the students don't try very hard either, they just sit around talk and use their phones.
There are fights and some are quiet major but being in the "art" side, not much things happen. Nonetheless, whenever their is a sub, random kids come in and just do nothing. Some teachers are also absent for long periods of time.
Certain teachers don't give proper test and let us use books and notes. I don't think that it is a good way of evaluating us. Of about the 6 classes i have, 2-3 of them are capable.
The punishment system is also poor, peopel that are late to school more than 10 times get suspended. 13 times, you get kicked, it's a new rule. Peopel that roam the halls also get suspended, BUT they come back and do the same thing without ever getting kicked. There are other offenses commonly seen but doesn't get nearly as severe of a punishment for lateness no matter how many times.
