CAC is located in Egypt. This is just one of the many high schools that are a failed experiment in preparing young people for the adult world. The crappy insulation has all fagged out and the building becomes an oven or a meat locker. The plumbing is usually a disaster in high school, with drinking fountains never working but toilets that never stop running. It's run poorly by a team of out of touch assholes who people seem hell bent on destroying all hope for students through tedious testing and poorly planned projects. It's also the place where the stress of growing up and the stress of fitting in join forces to destroy even the strongest among us. Most of High school is not spent learning but involves trying to find friends who aren't complete douche bags, trying hook up with people of the opposite sex unsuccessfully, combing your hair, buying cloths in the effort that someone will notice you, trying desperately to get rid of the zits that have taken over your face, or riding on an over crowed bus while choking on diesel fumes while people you don't know make fun of you. Not to mention the crappy food selection. There are only two equally shitty options: Jared's Bagels, and Cilantro. Cilantros is thought to be some fancy ass place, when all it really is, is processed factory-made sandwiches at outrageously high prices. Jared's is if you want a quick, cheap heart attack during passing periods. And on top of all of that, you must act like nothing is wrong in your life.
In the end, it's a pretty decent place. I'd just rather have no high school than any high school. Cairo American College is what you make of it.
