My high school is so terrible it's hard to put into words. It's overcrowded to the point where it's like walking through a mob in the hallways. There are mice and cockroaches because the hallways are full of garbage. The teachers don't want to be there (I'm not just saying that because I hate teachers). My teacher gave us a list of occupations to memorize in Spanish and she left teacher off of the list because "we should never become teachers". My math teacher is known in school as the Munchkin Man because he doesn't teach and all he does is bring munchkins into class!
There are more problems.
I just don't know what to do, okay. My school is hell and the teachers act like there's nothing wrong with it. Hell, $50,000 was donated to my school last year and they spent it on a Foosball table and TV for this hang out room meanwhile the desks are literally falling apart and written on. I can't even be homeschooled because it costs thousands of dollars in my state.Update:
Asshole Second Comment--
I had straight A's in middle school. When I applied, my high school was one of the best to go to. As years progressed, the school has gotten much worse. The school I described is so bad that it sounds like the worst you could go to because it is. All of my siblings have gone to my school and when they were there, it was so much better. The year I entered, they got a new principle who ruined it.

I think it should be that you didn't meet the requirements to go to a better high school. Nowadays, students do not go to their zone school many choose commute to better schools which are not in their neighborhoods. Those public schools that get less funding from the government are the ones that are low performing. The government doesn't see the reason to invest any money in a school that has students that does poorly. Unmotivated teachers is a huge sign that the school is bad. I know this from experience. Check out your school's college acceptance rate and take a look at some of the colleges those graduates get into. If over 40 percent are bad colleges, that indicates that the school is incompetent in educating students.
edit: sorry if you were offended by my answer. but I went to school in the NYC and this is how public schools in my area works. If its a top notched school, there should be more funding from the government. I don't know if it is your principal that is not spending any of the funds or if you've your school is not provided with the funds. Also it usually takes several years for a school to go into ruins not only 1 or 2 years.
I get what you mean, my high school is way overcrowded too (I think most schools in CA are), my teachers come to school high sometimes and the security guards are a joke. Last year my teacher barely ever showed up, we literally just sat there with a substitute the whole class period with no material to even learn. I think there just isn't enough money in the school system. The big politicians who are in charge don't even realize how important it is to give money to schools, because they all went to private schools.
At the same time I still feel lucky to go to school, education is a privilege. In Pakistan, girls have gotten acid thrown in their faces for even trying to go to school.
I would focus on what to do about it. Write letters to congress. Campaign. Meet with the board of education
