Well this school has great teachers but the food isn't that good. The school is small so the teachers can get to know u and help you a lot more then a big school. There is not much bullying in the school because the school does there best to prevent in during the Monday morning meeting the school has. It's every Monday and it is a review of the week and up coming events which is kinds boring but important.
