Ok school just all the kids steal stuff. They also do not have proper gramer.

I have to say, this is one of the worst schools I have ever gone to.The worst part about the school is the fact that the students are very vulgar and ignorant. They have such a distain for proper grammer, reading, and any intelegence whatsoever, that I find myself frequently correcting them. Another thing is that the teachers dont know how to use the resorces available to them. Also, there are at least three fights each day, and most of them at the bus loop or lunch. One thing that bothers me is that the website for the school is very garrish, and reminds me of myspace,which I dont approve of. http://www.palmbeach.k12.fl.us/CongressMS/conhome.htm is the url for the school. Seriously.
