Diz skool iz tha bomb! there'z no skool dat can top us cuz we r the one and only criminals. What else could be better than uz? Thiz skool iz fun 2 hang out wit ur friendz. Some of the teachers are great but there are others that are juss plain strict. You learn alot there especially when your wit friendz. The only thing i dont like are the security guards. They get you in trouble for no reason or for the slightest thing. They are to delicate. Us crims need securities we could be cool wit and fun to hang around. Everyone i know dat used to go there during the '90s said YHS was the best place to be because the school used to hold games for valentines and other holidays. Everyone used to get along even with the security guards! Now everything seems boring except when your around wit friends. I TRULY WISH things could be like Yuma High was during the years 95 and so on wit all that fun going around at the same time everyone learned with there friends. How is it possible that the school changed fun for strictness. Were CRIMINALS we need fun around us to get us to work!!!!
