  • Ms 246 is now the safest school you can be at. The teachers are more engaging the lessons more fun.The class size isnt too much about 25 per class and less.There are more programs to join like the book club and many more.The principal's and dean's all come out of their offices and see how evey thing is happening.The teachers are nice and their is so much information to learn. Students are doing so much better now Ms246 is a A school.
