I love how at our school we have a friendly environment where all the staff, teachers, and students are kind towards each other.
I thought Columbia Junior High was great! The teachers were all very caring of each student. The only thing I would change is to have a little more freedom. The rules are kind of strict and they enforce them no matter what usually.
