For my short stay, bullying wasn't an issue (aside from teachers) and we had a total of 6 fights in 3 years, almost all of which were stopped immediately by staff. In an honest review it wasn't perfect, and it was filled with drama but I think that's just middle school. The education was great and was always there whenever I decided to do work. If you're a student bored in class looking at reviews, I got 3 tips for surviving Seitz. Do your work when it's given to you, don't try to act funny for your class (it doesn't do anything besides make you look bad in the long run) and really try to get ahead. I thought id never make it to high school or that middle school would take forever but it really fly, so just make good memory's and get good grades it'll be over before you know it.
