  • I think that the school was great . I actually just graduated last year and i think that i really focus on staff and students. Plus, we are all together like a family. It is really a great school !!! The disneyworld trip was amazing!! Just the fact that they would do that for seniors is hard to imagine. I had so much fun !!! But, some of the teachers aren't so great. Such as Ms. Mary Simmons. She is a little to rough on the students!! I really do not understand why they decided to give her kindergarten this year either. To me she may ruin those kids!! But, overall it is a great school with great students and teachers !!!
