  • this school might be like
    okay . but there's always people getting in trouble and into alc. also this year 2009 all the 7th graders had a food fight they dint did anything to any of the students just to several that were the one's who start it and they even suspended a girl that dint even start and all that food fight happened because the teachers weren't there supervising the students they were somewhere else. Also the teachers when they're teaching students are behind them doing other stuff and sometimes don't let the others learn.
    there's a lot of discrimination like other students saying stuff to the others . I hope this would work to see how this school is. and yes im a student writing this and it's for everyone to know.
