I like my school a lot! The teachers are very helpful and really want to help you be successful! It is a nice environment to learn in where I have lots and friends and do not feel bullied. There is some problems with vaping in my school, but the admiration is working with the students to try to stop this and educate them on why it is not good for their health.
The schol itself is pretty decent with its choice of teachers and the amount of effort made to make everyone feel included. The only huge complaint that I have is that the teaching styles of each teacher don't cater to everyone, menaing that many people have to teach themselves material that they don't understand to begin with.
