  • I only gave this school a apple because the pay wages are too low and the students are disrespectful and unkind.

  • :-0 this school has little education budgets, and some of the staff are stuffy and impolite, even when students are being respectable. There are unnecessary remarks and write-ups from the drivers to students for reasons as talking to the student in the next seat, slouching, and even for being a certain race. The school has too many students and the hallways r overly packed. the lunches are nothing but grease and fat, their idea of chicken alfredo is shredded chicken and melted cheddar. please do not disregard this complaint, as a student.

  • I liked the school and the area but there were a lot of racist people,like when i was riding the bus home people would say racial slurs to me,but i just ignore them.But at home someone put a swastika on my window,so thats why we moved,i wish i could have stayed there longer but most people were mean to me,so now i live in new mexico but i want to go back to washington so bad because i like the scenery and new mexico is boring,but nice also.
