This school needs an upgrade but they don't have the money for it so the system is rigged.

This school honestly took a toll on my mental health. This school is honestly worse than my other schools I went to. Most of the teachers are amazing, though! Most of them are kind, understanding, and friendly! I don't know the staff much, but guessing from the MANY school problems (shooting threat last year (April 2019), someone was arrested, many bullying websites, that one Moby Max incident last year, and many other incidents that isn't appropriate to mention here) they aren't doing the best job. Besides, they want to punish bad students by doing In-School-Suspension instead of Suspension and/or Expulsion because they don't want the school to have A Bad Reputation. (Not to mention there isn't a principal as of Winter of 2019-2020)In conclusion, this school does a horrible job on protecting the students from bullies and such. Many teachers are nice, but a few aren't (Some teachers may have broken CCSD homework rules, that is what I assume from reading the rules) I think I may be in trouble posting this review anyway, like one Google review said: We aren't allowed to have an opinion.

Teachers and staff are rude, and extracurricular activities are never mentioned and students are never told how to join them.
