They make the school seem cool and fun / Exciting . But once you get their its not worth it . Do your kids a favor and dont send them here . Plus , the teachers ( a few love to pick on the kids ) Especially the black ones . ( im not black tho . Okay , anyways it would be better to take them to a school where its a higher income and with a safe enviroment .
