I love this school, and I'm not being biased because I go here. Most of the teachers are so nice and caring. We have lots of clubs that keep growing, and we have many sports. I am in 8th grade, and in all my years, there has been not too much bullying, and it was handled well.
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.
