I just wanted everyone to know, that there are some good teachers at Atholton who will help. However, there are some bad teachers at Atholton who will allow cursing, swearing, and will take anger out on student, based on their personal life. Their music used to be good with MRS. herzel but with the next teacher, uhh that was not good. I hope there new music teacher is better than the last one.
