School Reviews

I've been to many schools and I've gotta say; this one is the worst one out of all. Some teachers seem completely bored and rude at points, while others are okay. One teacher in particular, however, has the shortest temper I've ever seen. She leaves some details out of assignments and expects us to know stuff we haven't learned yet as well. Back on track, there is also a huge lack of discipline, as the other kids usually getting in trouble keep doing the same things without a care in the world. There is a large variety of sports and clubs, but they seem to care more about these than the education. They also remind us to do better so they can get their rankings higher. Overall, this school is a complete mess and should be avoided unless it's your final option. (side-note: Most of the kids in my grade (8th) can't spell this well and are horrible at speaking aloud. I learned all of this at other schools.)
