My school is okay.
Not really bad at all. Fights have started growing for frequent though and there is one teacher who I hate with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns, I don't think the other teachers like him either. The fights are stupid though, they're over the most idiotic things but get so bloody you would think otherwise. Food isn't really all that bad, but I only eat one thing every day so I wouldn't really know. Someone has a nasty habit of setting off stink bombs every other day, you would think someone would have caught him or her by now if it's the same person, which it probably isn't. They stopped a number of events at our school because of the behavior of a few seniors and juniors. Someone sent a message to every computer on our school LAN as well as other computers in other schools in the county calling anyone would read it a dickhead. This also caused some change in our school but nothing big.
Well I guess my school isn't that good either but I'm sure there are schools that have it worse. Anyway I'm a senior about to graduate, I've done my work, got my As and Bs and a couple Cs .......... and it's all going to be over in a few months.
Oh wait, then theres college.

The thing about my highschool is that they spend all this money on building a stupid kindergarten when they could use that money to fix the water bubblers and create a 50m swimming pool. I go to one of the best schools in Queensland yet the teachers and deans of studies only favour the students who do well at Science and Maths. There really should be praise for those student who study music, drama, art, Languages other than English, Philosphy and History. And also the teachers look at how the student is doing well at the subject which is what they should be doing but the should also look at the student personality and actual genreal knowledge. I do modern history and there is this boy who always gets A+ and yet he asked me why so many vietnamese people are good at baking and creating all these pastries. I just looked at him and asked him " Are you really that ignorant?!, don;t you know that the French colonised that area for a particular time and yet you recive A+ in modern history. I really hate ignorant people like that!!!

My uni is quite nice, though it's a really huge city school so there's not really a campus per say. My secondary school was quite bad in terms of academic quality, but there weren't that many fights and usually they were just fist fights - no knives. I would guess it was average in terms of drugs. No metal detectors or sniffing dogs or anything drastic like that.

Ahh, how bad is my school? lol, 3 teachers died in the same classroom, all of a heart attack. One in the morning, two during a class (that isn't our fault though). One teacher is a fat pervert who got sacked. One guy nearly died cause he got hung by his bag when climbing over a fence. We have fights nearly twice a week between years or with other schools. Drugs and smoking is done nearly everywhere in the school. Firebells are set off at least once a month (one time it was set of 4 times in one day >_>). Hmm besides that i reckon my school is okay... lol.

I think some of you are exaggerating some of these or at least not providing any positive parts of your school which makes your school sound terrible.

My school has a 35% dropout rate. This means that out of all of the students that arrive freshman year or transfer, only 65% graduate. However, in comparison to the other school in our area, we look pretty good (they have a 50% dropout rate).

About 90% of the school partakes in alcohol and/or drugs (this means pills, marijuana, methamphetamine, abusing Robitussin, etc).

There are rats, mice, and cockroaches all around this building. This is due to both the building being very old and due to students (many students will leave their trash on the ground or throw food/drinks on the ground).

Yes, there are fights but many schools have them. However, the fights have decreased in the past two years. I think I've heard of maybe three fights this entire year.

My school's average composite ACT score is around a 24 which is pretty decent. The students place well on standardized tests too (although they are not amazing). [School includes special ed/disabled students in these scores]

My school academic-wise is fairly solid. It offers a variety of different levels of courses (special ed, regular, college prep, honors, HES, AP, and TAG) so you can mix and match to your speed. There are a lot of HES/AP courses to take too so that's a plus. My only complaint with the courses is that they only offer Spanish, French, and German. I wish they'd have a wider variety of language courses (and the German teacher is retiring after this year).

in terms of, crime, misbehavior, attendance as well as grades and other things
My school (all-boys private) is not that bad. It has its moments - mischief, fights, drugs, class rivalry and whatnot, but all in all, it's okay.

The only serious bad thing about the school is its arrogance, and it pretty much influences everyone at school.
