Total Education (known as "Total ED", or more commonly "Total" by its students) is an alternative learning facility located in Vancouver, British Columbia, for students that aren't compatible with mainstream school. It hosts grades 10 to 12.
About 80% of the students there smoke cigarettes. About 95% are actually really fucking nice people. There's a lot of metalheads and artists.
Generally, the typical student at Total will have had either drug issues, mental health issues, behaviour issues, etc. Our school's a little crazy. But we like it that way, and being around people who have struggled with the same things you have is extremely therapeutic.
The general attitude amongst the students is that they love their school. You always hear people saying how much they like it here. Our school was hosted at Tupper for a while because our school had a fire, and pretty much everybody completely hated it and all the students in it. But we're back, and everyone's happy.
