I truly feel that this school has some really good Teachers for the most part but there are alot of sheep in wolves clothing at this school with a push-over for a principle who wants to be everyones friend rather then grow a set and deal with problems she there are teachers and staff that think that there put on the earth to be worshiped and who think that students should all be the same learning level and pupils with special needs shouldnt be in pubic schools but on mars.
