I hate it the teachers suck so rude my year was terrible!! I am just joking my uncle is a teacher there and he loves his students and his students love him when he gets home on the last day he came home with a letter, and that student said how they look forward to his class and his crazy socks.

They put student safety first, with each group of students divided into a core group from which they share the same teachers and classes. There is a bully box for anonymous complaints or tips. There are different levels for math offered and a great special education program.
There are a variety of clubs for different interests. There's a runners club the P.E teachers support and helps encourage students to participate and get ready for track and cross country in high school. There are ethnic based groups like a Spanish Club. One of the English core teachers has a book club he supports.
