I am an eighth grade hers and I've been just about everywhere in the school and have suffered through three years of weird puberty stuff and the workload plus trying to figure out who I am plus battling depression has been really stressed full. The school also does nothing about the bullying from what I've seen and in half the classes I have I don't really absorb the information they're teaching me. Also, the dress code just doesn't make sense half the time. Some people get in trouble for showing belly while others don't and I've heard about people getting dress coded about ripped jeans. Overall, this school could be better with some improvements such as a more interactive learning plan giving out the right punishment to students and teaching the children here to be more accepting so as to stop the bullying.
