There is not much bullying at all, and the teachers are all really nice.

I go to SOJH and it's actually a pretty good school, there isn't much bullying, as you'd expect in 12-15-year-old pubescent creatures. There is an acceptance for people of diverse origins, gender identities, or sexuality. 5/5 because they have a potato bar.
