School Reviews

If the school band is an example of the school, I would say "no" on recommendation. Friday, the 16th of November, I attended the game against S.A. Bandeis. It has always been the custom for the band to face and perform for the hosting team. Why did they turn their backs to the host, while playing Westside Story. I found it offensive.
