I hate Lewiston High School... I may be a student here, but I absolutely hate it. There is fights going on in the lunch room, and bullying everywhere, teachers and upper "Faculty", think they know what's going on, but they are forgetting there is Social Media, I can't even begin to explain how horrible this schools is. The teachers, Oh my don't even get me started, there is a few amount of teachers who actually care.
