As a teen who used to go to this school. I just want to say I loved the fights. They were so entertaining. The school food was Removed though. The teachers not giving a Removed was great, but then again they didn't give a Removed but gave us a Removed ton of homework. But I do think they should get the students help like damn stop suspending us and giving us is that ain't going to fix anything. When I was there, they also treated the kids with disabilities pretty badly like damn.

This school would rather get rid of their kids then find a way to help them. The administration is just there to collect a paycheck instead of teaching these kids the right thing to do. I would think twice before enrolling your child in this school.
