School Reviews

5  
I went to this school and had just graduated this past year and I loved Cloonan. The atmosphere was so comfortable. Most of the teachers I had were great give or take one. They offer academic rewards but no athletic rewards. The academic ones are 3 year honor roll (high or reg.), Honor roll for the year (high or low) and some others. There is band, chorus, orchestra and general music. The teachers also take time to get to know you and are willing to help you out. The students I graduated with were respectful to the teachers, didn't bully you if you were gay, lesbian, bi or special needs and they weren't really causing trouble like the other schools. Just a warning though lockers are kind of small.
