I had a wonderful time being at this school too bad I moved but they were so kind :) It's been almost 4 years since I've last been there I'll be graduating and moving onto high school in 2 years I guess 1 (cause of COVID-19). They taught me so much and I hope more students come in; I had a lot of friends and I hope they are just fine! Love from NYC.
