Safety, fun, teachers are nice. Sports are fun, the school could use some central air, I think all schools should have that. It has great lunches, super cool to eat in 2 different areas. I like that this school is close to jome but I have to cross a very busy road in the dark so they should give bus service so us kids could stay safe. People dont pay attention and I have almost gotten hit a couple of times. Or they could have crossing guards that cross us for our safety. I have seen a lot of close calls with kids in my school.
Lot's of opportunities for academic study. New auditorium as well as other building improvements despite a few shortcomings. Staff filled with some fantastic teachers and some sub par. Not a whole !it of clubs, but not much interest. Passing time is a mess, but there isn't much within the school's control concerning that.
