A high school located in Astoria
. This school is affiliated with St. John's University
and the students are all from different parts of the city. Many ethnic groups go to the school: Greeks, Italians, Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Poles, and Asians. The school's academic system consists of four different levels. The level you get put in is determined by your 8th grade average and a special placement test. Each level has a diffferent difficulty. Level 1-Remedial, Level 2-Average, Level 3-Regents, and Level 4-Honors.
Most of the students are in level 2. However, the next highest people are in level 1. Usually, there's only 1 or 2 Honors and Regents classes per year. Most of the teachers at the school are pretty good instructors. Some of them have even been there for 20 years or more.
Despite the fact that the school is very good for high academic achievers, there's the social problems of the school. Sadly, many of the students are rap
-loving imbeciles who will make fun of you if you're intelligent or if they consider you a nerd
. Infact, some of them pick on other students for no real reason at all. Many of the sensible students are in Honors and Regents. Not too many are in the levels below.
There is also the problem of fights. This year, there were over 4 fights in the Freshman year alone. There have also been two freshmen expelled.
Despite all this, the school is still pretty good.

Chris: Hey, that kid is wearing navy blue pants and a white shirt. He must go to St. John's Prep.
Jimmy: I hear that school's pretty good. I might send my son there.
