This school has almost every website blocked for their students I think it isn't fair that they are taking our freedom away. Someone needs to fix this because it isn't right to the students that some websites are given to us to do our work and they are blocked on the laptops they need to go back to books the WiFi doesn't work half the time. The laptops crash on us so this needs to be fixed
