I love this school and as a 4th grade student at cantata I would give this school a 100 out of 10. Some people say the teachers are mean but they really aren't they are very friendly. I love this school; the school is like a family that always will welcome me with open arms. I love to help the school they also taught me my option will always matter so don't neglect your feelings. I really love this school, it is like my second home. The only thing everyone kid hates is homework.
