  • I LOVE the school. It may not be the place that makes you pop out of bed in the morning, but it is great. I love it, even though somethings are a little rough around the edges, it is a great school

  • This school could be amazing. But what happens is that it could be a lot better. I am a student there, and I think it is an amazing school, but it stinks that they don't care.
