I love going to this school. The only thing is that they got rid of all drawing and painting classes. =( But, the sports are extremely competitive, and they push you to do your best. The teachers are available a lot at lunch for you to get help. But, one other bad thing, is it is EXTREMELY overcrowded at lunch. You cannot walk down the halls without seeing a group of people.
