The teachers here are relatively nice. I've made quite a few friends with the teachers. The other kids in this school aren't the greatest as you'd say. Very judgemental, yes. There aren't many interesting clubs to join unless you are a sports kid that is.

I love this school the teachers are very nice well most of them. 6th grade was a very comforting year since it was my first year their. Seventh grade was my favorite year because everything was as perfect as it possibly could be and now i'm in eighth grade and things got harder but it make sense because i'm going into high school next year.
