Open Quote Boy...oh, boy... it appears I am still in "prison", and as time progresses, for the older I become, for the more years of high school I complete, my time only gets slower and more tedious because of how much I wish I could be let out of "prison". If only more schools, including this, could give out less homework to let the creativity of the newer generations of kids grow, like art for example! Instead, most schools like the school with the name of a processed meat in its name(though it has been that way for a couple of centuries now) make the poor students like me and many others stress our minds on homework, quizzes, tests, tests for college preparation, oh yea, don't forget college stress! Teachers in this school range from sub par to terrible, only a couple stand out as great teachers, the majority will simply talk down to their students whom are still developing at their age(including myself). Sports I personally don't care about, and lucky me, it is 99 of the time of all my classes I have to listen to people talk about them, part of the reason why it feels like a prison for me. Oh, and seeing that this generation is always on their smartphones, it gives the faculty the imitation that giving students more of the opportunity to use computers and Chromebooks...wait a minute, did I say give students? I meant FORCE STUDENTS, to do their work on more technology, just to rot our brains even more. The majority of people at this school, and I'm sure many other schools, are VERY one dimensional, YOU HAVE to go to college, YOU HAVE take these tests for college, YOU HAVE to apply, YOU HAVE to use what we tell you to use because we think it is fair as pompous teachers we are. Oh, and do not forget peer pressure, oh dear, does bullying sure go around in this school. They also force you to go to their stupid pep rallies and make you scream, etc etc, you can call me a complete sourpuss but frankly I do not care. It is, from my standpoint, an uncomfortable environment, and I pity those students whom work their hardest just to get into a good college, and I do pity those whom get jack-hammered on the head for not doing most of their work, and for the result, get average grades(or worse). A good moral to conclude is to not rush time upon what you cannot stand in life, and instead, focus on what you love to do, because the bad you want to rush will only fly by the top of your head and it'll go by like it all went from February to June in a simple day. When I graduate from this Hell, I will feel like a millionaire, free to do my career in animation! I hope many others have the same motivation too. Overall, Bacon Academy(and other high schools out there) is the most generic, uncomfortable, pitiful school out there. And now, allow me to leave you with a very glorious, moralistic quotes out there, one that I had created myself:

"I do things differently compared to the general public, yet surprise,
surprise, I am still a successful human being." - The Matt-Rap Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
