The gym floor is dusty. They say they clean the floor daily but they don't; I saw a girl in my grade kill a bug in there with a door stopper, then the boy behind her took the door stopper and mushed it against the floor. Every time you put your hand on the floor 8 tons of dust come with it. Plus half of the gym is covered in furniture. But yea the gym is EXTREMELY dirty.
