School Reviews

If your smart, or you have good behavior, you can relatively thrive in this school, but if you don't have any of these qualities, point blank... expect hell. The well being of students is pretty much overlooked, and appearance doesn't really matter here, i say this in a negative way though, as you can probably come into school with bags under your eyes or red, irritated looking eyes, and all you'll get from a teacher is a comment. This is extremely negligent, and at the end of the day I really do believe the teachers do not care... I am a student at this school who doesn't like to go to lunch, though sometimes will if ABSOLUTELY neccessary, but ill try to get out of it however I can. One day, when i walked into a classroom during lunch, I requested to stay up, when rejected, I tried to explain to the teacher that I couldn't go because of social fears, and the teachers exact words to me was "That's not my business, and I don't care" and sent me down to lunch. So there's my review of this school, I've begged my mom to transfer me, but she won't listen.Think twice if you want to send your child to this school.In terms of academic, this school is quite decent... but it terms of the well being of students.. i'm pretty sure they are just making money off the sadness of others.If you don't care if your child is happy or sad and just want them to be forced to learn and not be allowed to express their emotions, then send them here, if not, pick a different school.
