  • I go to this school now and I'm in the fifth grade. There are fights every day and the school lunch is horrible. the people in Special Ed are across from my classroom and they throw garbage into our room. EVERYONE curses in this school, except for me. Some of the teachers really don't care about their students. I'm in an excelled class and lots of people still get very bad grades in my class. There are 900 students and mice run around daily. Sometimes there are roaches in the lunchroom too. Lots of drama. Don't go to this school.
