This school is terrible, the teachers are odd, but there are a few exceptions.

This is a newer school that is not too new to not have any traditions. The teachers are great except for 2 or 3. Many of these teachers have their masters or higher in level of education. This is an A+ school as of this year. This school is among the elite in public schools. Sports are on a high level for all of you jocks and female jocks. Football is has always been a top program in the state since its first year, and Basketball always has a great team, able to contest each year for a state championship. For the female jocks out there, Softball is number one in the state two years running, with two state championships, and competing for a third. Overall I would give this school an A. Sweeps are dumb(.)
