Hi i am currently a seventh grade student at WCA .I have attended this school since first grade and since then I have had a lot of REALLY good experiences but also a few bad ones.Will Carleton has great education, staff ,and discipline.That being said I know someone who has been bullied outside the school in which they said that there was nothing they could do.After this I was a little upset for the lack of attempt to stop the cyber bullying.There are also a lot of inside groups from churches,other schools,ect. in which it makes it a bit hard to fit in and make friends.I have a love for this school and its teachers who always make you feel welcome but i am currently contemplating leaving the school.The reason is because although great education and teacher's the school does not have certain curriculars that i strongly want(health class,choir,spanish,ect.)and the ones we do have are not very good.We only get art one time a week and we don't have the best sport programs either.I am unsure whether or not to recommend this or not.
