I attend Sun Prairie High School and I do not love it to say the least. Everyone is very inconsiderate and ignorant here. I am disappointed in my school's culture.

I go to sphs and I hate it. Everyone is very full of themselves, I don't feel very safe there and the kids.. basically just aren't the nicest. I've been considering changing schools.
