The security was low, anyone could get into back entrances and through the front door without checking in very easily. We didn't have any sort of police or ids so no one knew if you were actually supposed to be there. The school nurse was helpful but she was not always there as she had to work in other schools

Some teacher really did care about the students and our learning, but just as often some teachers couldn't control the classroom what so ever and some clearly did not enjoy teaching and put little effort into our learning
School was nice but due to old age it had been somewhat neglected in certain areas, such as air conditioning, bathrooms, there was no tutoring available and the library was very limited in selection
