It was okay I guess. I am just doing this to make my grade good. We are having to fill out scholarship stuff. I hope you understand and I am sorry that I wasted your time. If you pick me thank you. I would appreciate it. I just need money for college. College is expensive. Please help. If not you already helped by keeping my grades up.
the school as whole is amazing the elementry school has an A rating anf the middle/high school has a B rating. The students in the school could use improvement as far as attitude and the way they treat other students, but over all an okay school.
