School Reviews

I think that this school is a very good one just as some small tings that I feel could have been better. Like the music programs I wish that there were more and that we were able to do more. S for he teaching I wish that they would slow it down enough for me to be able to understand it more because, it confuses me a lot and I know that the teachers are doing the best with what they've got but, maybe we could fit some way for the students to learn things better so that when we graduate high school we will have a better handle on things in life.
