This school is ok at times. But when I need some one to talk to the principal is always there like they say the principal always has a pal. And that is not it the counclers are great also. I am in the 8th grade and I have gone to this school since the 5th grade and the only major problems that I have really noticed is that the teachers dont keep up on their grades or the excuse is alawys my computer crashed so either they have a bad computer system or they really dont keep up on their grades at ALL.The most funnest part of this school is the sports i love volley ball I didnt really like my 8th grade coach but I relazied that if I really love the sport that bad then i will contuine the sport so now I am in spring training for the sport.
