A high school in Lehigh Acres, Florida. It scores lower on standardized tests than the school for kids with behavior problems.
Nearly none of the teachers are qualified. The only ones that are are there to teach college classes. Other than that, most probably have never attended college. Any person with an 8th grade education (an 8th grade education NOT attained at Lehigh, mind you) can likely read at higher levels and do better on math and science than the educators at this school do. Some teachers are even known to come to school hungover, and they use class time to sleep it off while they assign pointless busy work.
The administration is a Hitler-esque henchman (Mr. Davis, but he's being changed, but the new one will likely take over where Davis left off) They suspend you or send to to "Time Out" if you question their authority. He has cronies at his disposal, including overweight "Security" guards who ride around on golf carts and try to look important.
"Time Out" is guarded by a portly African-American fellow named Taj. He looks totally helpless and ignorant. He hopelessly pecks at his computer keyboard trying to figure out the mystery of solitaire. He can be heard saying "Y'all be quiet"
As for extracurricular activities, drama is a joke. The football team is mediocre and the school band never plays in the stands. They hardly ever show up to games at all. After all, the humidity might damage their uniforms.
James: I got suspended for breathing too heavily after going up the stairs! They said I had no right to disturb the learning process!
Mark: That's Lehigh for you.
