School Reviews

2   11/19/2018
Some of the teachers don't treat everyone equally and the teachers abuse there power that they have over us. There needs to be changes in every aspect of this school. It needs to be remodeld and kept good care of. We needs to have more assembly's to talk about changes and see what students would like to see in the school instead of the administrators and teachers not letting the students have a word in. Students are saying that this school feels like jail when they come here.
