The classes are not really all that challenging. When I attended pre-ap courses and I felt like only about of 3rd of the class work was worth studying and even then that's pushing it. You really don't need to study to PASS the courses I took, let alone get highB's or A's. AP courses were the only ones that were engaging and challenging.... and you take those if you wish your senior year. What about the other three years? The school's reputation is much "cleaner" that it actually is. Going into details of what I observed is in "allegations" territory so I'll just leave it at that. The extracurricular activities are top notch... but if classes are so easy to pass is it any wonder as to how so many students can "pass and play"? I think the teachers are extremely dedicated but I guess because of the lack of interest in school among the student body they water down the curriculum to the bare bones TAKS objectives. That's another thing, the school does a good job with promoting TAKS tutorials and objectives so if a student doesn't pass it... something is terribly wrong with him or her because this school really works hard to keep high scores.
