School Reviews

5  
This school is freaking amazing, I have been here since 6 grade and now graduating this year and I must say, I am lost for words. The teachers are so hardworking and constantly put the effort to give us a good education. The vice-principal and principal are both amazing leaders and will help you with whatever you need. Not to mention the staff team is great at maintaining discipline. The school is a very safe and nurturing environment, but when it comes to academics, it is very rigorous. Recently we had a school walkout organized by 8th graders to go against sexual harassment/assault, and that greatly improved our statistics for a safe school. On InsideSchools, the bullying percentage went from 40% to 17% after the walkout and it went from 82% of students saying that they feel safe in hallways, bathrooms, etc. to 93% which is freaking amazing! I'd say the only downside to this school is sometimes your attendance would get screwed up and you would have more absences than you actually do. But that is an easy fix, you can go to the main office and report it. Also, the hallways are cramped. But that's about it.
