Smaller High Schools

For many students, especially those with problems, this can be a very good idea. At the same time, for a student that is being 'bullied' or is put into a group that none of their friends are in, it could be hell.

I worry for those that want to branch out and break with their old cohort. Either the larger schools are 'tracking' to create pods of students or they are repeating their entire curriculum four times? This by its nature would curtail class offerings/AP/Honors courses. If they are 'tracking' what of a student that chooses high school as a time to 'tune in' or 'tune out?'
