This school is a good school but it doesn't treat people fairly, everything goes to the magnet kids... Even for the accelerated kids (including me) we haven't went to any field trips in 2 years at all and they went on 2 for the past 2 years like always they get all the attention like always, and I think that's really unfair to us.
