I don't know what everyone else is talking about, but it would have been better for me to not go to school at all than to have gone here. I have some academic strengths, but also have some learning difficulties. Many of the teachers here, even the "good" ones, willingly ignored my difficulties, going as far as to humiliate me in front of the entire class when I couldn't live up to their expectations. Even worse, they would encourage other students in the class to join them in humiliating me. Those teachers also told my parents that I willingly not keeping up with the work, and my parents automatically believed them.I tried to explain to my teachers about my learning difficulties but they wrote me off as looking for excuses. Yet recently, I was genetically tested, and found genetic evidence for those difficulties. I am almost 26 years old and barely getting by, and still have flashbacks of my time here. My biggest regret was not just failing all my classes and dropping out.

Great school! My kids are very prepared for college and the sports programs are excellent.

I hated this school. They heavily discriminated against me because I'm a slightly overweight male. If you were a slightly overweight girl, there were no problems. Nobody should have to suffer so much for a few extra pounds!!

Terrible. It's supposed to be the one of the best schools in Michigan. However, I guess a good education consists of 7 hours of fill in the blanks homework every day. The math department has declined since I was here and the teachers just read out of the book and can't answer simple questions. At the same time, the teachers grade really hard and make condescending comments towards the students. This school is supposed to be "tolerant and openminded", but I have never been bullied EVER to the extent when I was here, and only had a couple acquaintances for four years. One student even started a Facebook group against me and I couldn't sleep for days. This school doesn't educate the whole student body, it only caters to the top 10% and believes the other 90% are better off grilling burgers.

I am removing my child from this school after this year. She had to repeat a math class that she got an A on last year. One teacher loses papers so they have to be redone; another teacher is mean, belittling, and intimidating and I've had to go to the principal about him; another teacher lets the kids go wild in class so the ones who want to work can't. My daughter is an advanced student and this is not the place for her. She gets blocked from her locker by a group of kids, who call themselves "gangstas," pick on her so she can no longer use it. She gets tired of all the talk of pot and sex (yes, I know this happens everywhere nowadays, but my daughter is actually there because she wants to learn). One of her friends is also being removed next year, and yet another already has been.
