I go to western pines I am in 6th grade and I love my Experience.The bad Language everywhere but I can take the talking I understand that it is a free country and in the constitution of independence our presidents signed that we could have the freedom of speech but this is more like bullying in the words. The good thing is there is no drugs or not many fights at the school. For the sex thing I can deal with it everyone can make scission's for their selves. I love my middle school experience and hope the rest of the years follow as this one.
