This school is nice and has some (notice I said some meaning not many) nice teachers. This school is not high on safety--I was feeling like I was unsafe and bullied by a few female students here. I came into the school in tears and was sent to the principal's office. He waited until 10-15 minutes until the last bell rang for us to leave to address the problem with the students. The students continued to bully me for months afterwards because he did not really do anything about it (saying I am only trying to get them in trouble--lying; which i am not) and they still do it to this day. Other than that, good school.
