  • Reviewed by Student on March 14, 2010
  • Rating: 3 (3 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • this school has really great scores overall for the CST's. but sometimes the school may be unfair because a student that was in 8th grade got expelled from a fight and was regular but another student that caused the fight that had the same offences at the other student was only suspended for 1 day, because she was honors which is a bit unfair..
