Is there a way to get 11 credits senior year. I failed one class and waited a year on another and am afraid that I wont be able to graduate. So basically will I be allowed to graduate if I can’t get the 11 credits.

I think the dress code at our school is completely unnecessary. Sometimes I feel really good about myself and want to wear something I like, why can’t I? I get that we cant show up in undergarments but I mean not being able to wear spaghetti straps, or a partially open back because you might see a bra strap is ridiculous. I feel like the administration doesn’t realize how hot it gets in the rooms with no air conditioning in summer. Especially when I have a little bit of space between my shorts and shirt and get dress coded for “exposing my midriff”. How is it fair?
