    I'm overly disappointed by this schools lack of motivating teachers and student body. There is no motivation from the teachers what so ever to even act as if they want to teach the students. There is violence and fighting that go on in the halls of SHS and I am furious with the way the school handles everything. I give it a 2 out of 10 on a good day.
