  • most students in that school don't do anything but cause trouble
    some of those teachers are lazy and don't teach anything others teach when they feel like it
    the good teachers can't teach because the boards are to old to write on
    the restrooms are disgusting with no soap and leap test is right around the corner and no one seems to take it seriously please please please do something about this
