  • this school has to be the worst ever. they accused me of giving up and skipping school when i was out for a long period of time due to having mono, the flu, and trying to figure out what was wrong with me. none of my teachers will let me makeup my work and now they're not going to let me graduate with my class. after denying me the right to graduate they also told me i cant come back to the school next year due to my having a severe criminal record WHEN ITS SQUEAKY CLEAN. this school is stupid. i hate it and i seriously am going to drop out as soon as i can.
