School Reviews

5   4/14/2020
This school is great academically, and everyone I've seen is nice and friendly. However, I have a teacher who speaks strongly about his -controversial- political beliefs, another teacher who makes the girls feel uncomfortable, and multiple teachers who clearly have favorites and award them unfairly. I'm still giving 5 stars because these issues can be easily fixed (I think).
