  • Reviewed by Student on June 20, 2011
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school is great but there are some major problems. the bathrooms are messy, the cafeteria lunch is to vomit on, they have too many rules, and they don't let us run because of our "safety." but really what i think is that they don't want us to have fun. What i think really is that this school should really be remodeled.
