  • Ha! This is a joke. Teachers that preferenced other students and had their favorites and made you feel you were worthless and you did not fit in, and that you were going nowhere and made you feel stupid...does that constitute a great high school? I'm laughing at them, now as I left that crummy town and am now in a rewarding career making more money per month than they could ever could make in 3 months of their salary!

  • hmmm how many people liked high school? I suppose there are some. I hated it for myself and I hated for my kids. YHS at the time did not accept credit for credit with homeschool transfers nor did they accept credit from Upward Bound. There are always some good teachers and some bad. Seems as is always the truth, administration doesn't really care about the students.
