The teachers are kind and want to be involved they enjoy being a part of the students'' lives and make positive impacts on their students''. The campus is clean. A bad alternative is the number of fights that the students have amongst themselves. Although, many of the fights are either an act or stuck up students purposely looking for problems and drama. As a former student, graduated 8th-grade last year, I have witnessed many students start drama and fake fights for attention. All the students involved in the fights have received fair punishments.
