The teachers at this school are rude and do not care about students' success.
Im so glad I got to send my mistake to this prison. Now he can't annoy me while trying to get a burger. So convenient I thought it was made by god until I realized this is satan playground. Love the idea for the pit of sadness underneath the bathroom.
This school is great!
Both my boys have enjoyed Sierra. They love the teachers.
The teachers are really rude and the security is crap.
