School Reviews

i love this school and i moved there from a public middle school. this is definetly the best school i have ever gone to and im learning more than i ever have in all the schools iv ever been to. also all the teacher are really nice and if you get stuck they explain it to you until you do get it. i love this school. and all and all the uniforms arent that bad as people think.
