  • the school isnt all that bad. Most of the time, you should have no problem fitting in. Also, those who complain about the teachers, are the ones who are not doing so well in school. Getting good grades in that school is easy if you just study and do the work. it generally a pretty good school. it's all how you look at it.

  • Even though the school is large. I dont think that it is the best. Our new principal treats us like we are preschoolers, and is more intrested in trying to look cool to us than doing her job. Over all the classes are good and so is the acadamy center. You can have a problem changing classes if yiour schedule is wrong but in the end it usually works out. Overall it's a good school.
