  • THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE! 75% OF THE KIDS SMOKE. 20% COULD ABSOLUTELY CARE LESS ABOUT GOING TO SCHOOL. 5% TRULY CARE, BUT ARE STUCK IN THIS DISGRACE THAT THE CITY OF GARFIELD CALLS A SCHOOL. THE FOOTBALL TEAM IS ONE OF THE WORST I'VE EVER SEEN. THERE ARE FIGHTS IN THE SCHOOL BUILDING AND OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING REGULARLY. 2 POLICE OFFICERS IN THE SCHOOL DOESN'T REALLY HELP MUCH. I FEEL SORRY FOR MY FRIENDS STILL GO THERE, AND I DO NOT SUGGEST THAT ANY PARENT PLACE THEIR CHILD IN THIS SCHOOL IF YOU HAVE THE OPTION NOT TO. OTHERWISE, JUST REPEATEDLY REMIND YOUR CHILD WHAT THE RIGHT AND WRONG THINGS TO DO ARE, BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T, THEY WILL END UP IN SOME SORT OF TROUBLE. GUARANTEED.
