School Reviews

My experience at this school was good. It wasn't the best, as some of the teachers were completely OBLIVIOUS, but I also remember the school as just being simple and fun. PE there was slacking off, besides of in 5th grade. Now I actually have to do crap. Like, run. And get hit extremely hard in the face with a soccer ball. And run. And run in ice. Did I mention we had to run? Because I don't think I did. But on (in?) the islands PE was nothing. The teaching also has a little bit of slack and they force students to read because they are, like I said, oblivious, and don't realize that you can't force a student to read, no matter how hard you try.
