I love this school district but the only thing I have wrong with it is this school. I'm not saying it's a bad place for everyone, but if your child is shy or not as smart as the others around him/her, then this might not be the place for them. The teachers here are all wonderful, and your child will thrive, but the kids are what really ruined my time here. My friends all agree that at this school, if you aren't smart, or you are overly smart, it's not cool. I was average, and all the "smart" kids always were rude to me. What you wore was important too. Wearing rainbow and sparkles was okay in 2nd grade, but not in 3rd(which is stupid because I mean they are awesome). Overall I learned a lot at this school, but the students at the time were not nice at all and it kind of ruined this school for me.
