Amazing school

This is the best school I have ever gone to and I have been to five different types of schools. This school has very well teaching and great programs. You have the ability to choose from three different types of music, you have technology, home ec., art, and health also. Not only that, but they have great advanced classes and intensive clases. All the teachers are amazing. Plus, since there are so many kids that go, you literally see a new face every day. I think that's pretty cool. Any ways, I love this school and anyone else who attends it would say the same thing.
