It's great if you get the right classes and teachers but if you don't, it can be not fun.

Bullies run rampant in this school. The one specific situation I would like to relay is that a gang of students who, over the years, repeatedly bullied individual students for their ethnic appearance, was very well-protected by the administration in numerous instances. They did not suffer any consequences for having attacked and terrified individual students. These attacks continued even after the administration was notified repeatedly.
