School Reviews

  • Recommended May 24, 2010 - I would not recommend this school beause it is letting the math instructor off so easily reagarding how to shoot OBama. Secondly, when I looked at your ethnic mix, there is none. You are an all white school, obviously notoriously biased, and, because you have accepted this teacher's analogy without question or punishment, you are obviously fundamentalists of the first degree. - Posted by Administrator
