We have two excellent academic programs, AVID and IB. If you are in one of these, you can get an amazing education. These programs get first pick of the schedule and teachers. If not, things can be hit-or-miss. There are countless dedicated and experienced educators here, but when a class has forty students, even the best teacher would have a tough time. If you want a great education and are willing to work for it and advocate for yourself, you can be very successful. If you are passive, you're out of luck.
