School is terrible. Classes are too long, schedule takes way too long to get used to. A huge problem at the school is bullying. Kids fight all the time in hallways, don't even get someone started on what happens at Anderson park. Teachers deal with these situations just awfully. I've been at the school for two years now and I dread waking up and setting foot in this horrible place. Don't go to this school, it's not worth three years of "education."
