School Reviews

5   5/6/2021
Going to this school fresh with no friends freshman year was not that hard. Everyone at school is nice, people are very welcoming here, the school feels really safe. It was pretty easy to make friends, only a select few are a little stuck up and rude. If you respect other people's space then they'll respect yours too. This school is awesome. Security guards are nice, Teachers are really cool (you could literally talk to them like they're your best friend) and they're always willing to help out.
