My school is great! Love most of the teachers and it's very interesting every day. You have plenty of different personalities. Only thing I would say bad is, we need more lunch choices. We need to add salads, sweets, and just something new it gets boring. Also, the principle.. She's very rude and disrespectful at the time. Students should be respected as well . She shouldn't have the right to scream in our faces so close that spit it touching us. Then when we get upset and say something we get phone calls home, detention and etc. This needs to change.

Cedarbrook middle school is a very fun and interesting school. They have plenty of activity's available to you. The students have open arms and they welcome you ( This was my first year ) Now, although they is mold in our school and we have to seperate into 3 buildings, this school is still very good. It will take atleast 5 years until you all are reunited. But such a very good school. Lunch, they have fried chicken, cheese and peperoni pizza, hot wings, cheeseburgers, grilled cheese, hogies, pretzels, chips, and ALOT !! I hope to see new students here :)
