Hi I LOVE this school and I love the way they run the place and how nice all the teachers and staff are and how they are the first school to have a T.E.A.T.H program and that program shows how bullying is not the right answer and that there is another way and they don't just come in once a year they come once a week for the who school year abd they talk for an hour in each class and they do acts in the classrom so that you can see how bulling can affect someone and the school has us do team work projects and they really nail bullying down I perfer this school over the last shool i went to and i can't what to back this year! :)
