I transferred schools in third grade. I never fit in. The work amount was ok but built up over time. I got into many fights with my peers. The school tried to enforce its liberal opinions on us. The diversity is just bad. I am one of two biracial kids in my class. I still have lots of trouble fitting in. We get way too much homework that is way too easy for the grade level, which is just useless. I cannot wait for high school.
