School Reviews

5   12/28/2015
I would definitely recommend this school. The teachers and the programs are also very good and I have experienced them firsthand throughout he 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school year. The teachers are nice unless if you get on their bad side. I am also in a few programs such as their global scholars program. They taught me many things. Before, I could barely write an essay and now I can write one with ease. In fact, I could write an essay and more on this schools greatness but I will not. Even the English teacher Mr. Ham, even though he is mean, has a very good understanding on certain things such as the book Lord of the Flies. Mr. Ramirez and Mr. Lechuga are very good teachers as well. They explain things in a good way and are very good at creating difficult math questions. Ms. Lara is also a teacher at this school. She is the Spanish teacher. And one of the most important teachers of this school is Ms. Gomez. She would do anything for her students, especially her honor students. You can't even imagine how much time and effort she puts for us. Just recently, she let people throw pies at her face just to fund raise. Well I could go on and on but I need to stop here because I need to get back to my schoolwork. THATS ALL FOLKS.
