  • this school wasn't that good of a school. The teachers were mean and crabby i wouldn't say i have good and fond memories of this elementary school. Many fights would go on when i got to 4th grade. A lot of the time those fights wouldn't be stopped by teachers until the end. Some favoritism would go around between the teachers towards some students. I started to go to this school in 3rd grade and the teachers didn't make learning fun like in my old school in shelton even worse they made me hate school and think school is really boring because classes were really dull and boring. This school needs more school activities it has nothing. Some of the teachers i had were good teachers that made me feel like learning others acted like college professors and weren't good teachers.
