This school is horrible. The teachers drink (on the job), and do drugs. The counselors are depressed, and the students are traditionally rude and there is a lot of bullying. The school as a whole is horrible, and they don't care about lower class or middle class. They aren't into improving students and will toss kids out for doing the silliest things that three years ago, wouldn't have even been a problem.
