School Reviews

2   5/30/2011
The way the administrators handle discipline at the school is a disgrace. Putting everyone in ISI doesn't solve problems. They need more programs that reach out to students to teach them sound problem solving skills and why mental health is important. Also the bathrooms could be cleaner and neater and not look like they are falling apart.
