School Reviews

2   2/25/2011
Many students at this school display an incredible lack of self-control, and are frighteningly disrespectful in public. Teachers, and moreover chaperones when on trips, don't even seem to attempt to control the students; they allowed students to shout inappropriate things at total strangers, complain loudly about the type of people they are around, tell hotel guests to shut up, etc.
