  • i'm sorry to hear this assessment, however you must be pretty smart to realize the shortcomings of your school.

    it sounds like a cliche but if you study hard and behave then one day you'll have a good job and great career. there's lots of opportunity out there.

    make good grades, behave, and keep your eyes on the prize.
