I found this school to be tolerable at best, traumatising at worst. Most teachers do not care about their students and the arts classes are deplorable. Sadness and anger runs rampant and bullying is extremely high. Teachers actively bully students they don't like at times and ignore students that don't stand out. You are made to feel worthless and unskilled. Sports are valued about all else. Conflict between east and west is always intense. The teachers are harsher than they need to be or barely there. Depressed students are everywhere. Violent students are everywhere. It is not at all a friendly environment.
