Im in 9th grade and almost all of the kids here are hella rude or on that dummy crap. A few of my teachers dont follow my IEP, 504 plan and my behavior plan. some of the hall monitors are rude and the floor is always dirty after the 8th graders go to their classes. 9th graders arent allowed in 8th grade hall but yet they're allowed in 9th grade halls. It's bloody chaos here. im glad theres only 5 days left.

Some teachers were better than others, while in some classes I didn't really learn much. For example, when I got to college a lot of kids had read certain book in high-school while I didn't even know what the books were. All in all I loved my high-school though.
My principle is very down to earth and wants what is best for the school and students. We take discipline very seriously in my school, I like that. My school has a positive atmosphere and most of the teachers are great. We have a lot of school pride too.
