Here, we have the most dedicated teachers I've ever known. Giving us advice on how it is like in the near future. These teachers understand that not all us teens have it easy, so they make sure to assist us in every way possible. I am grateful for many of the teachers I have met. Most can be serious but also very entertaining as well.

Well I do enjoy teachers at this school, but I find this school to be a bit strict. We rely mostly on the tutorials and or extra help given to us by certain staff members. The way the school deals with discipline, is what I think to strict. The food is not all that great either, but at least we get many choices to choose from.
it’s an okay school. they should allow the kids to have more freedom, they treat us like middle schoolers. they also should provide better food, the food is nasty except a few things.
