School Reviews

5   2/3/2022
I am gonna be honest with sugar coating. This school is THE BEST. The food is great and the teachers are super nice and cool. But once in while there will be fights but the teachers break it up immediately without anyone getting harmed. The school is big and clean. So, in conclusion, I really love this school and will miss it dearly.
