10/10 would recommend this school for anyone. Right now I am a senior in high school but I used to go to this school. And I had a lot of good memories.

Wonderful school and teachers but the children (mostly boys) should be controlled they say offensive to females and 8th and 7th treat the 6th graders badly. I have been cussed at a lot for no reason. Right now I don't wish to be friends with any of them same goes for the 6 graders too but not everybody is like that. It is not the kids but the things that they watch makes them rude. But the learning expirence was very fun for mean and the teachers were so very nice
