School Reviews

Ivy Street was a school which gave me a lot of great opportunities such as a photography class, performing in the talent show, a paying job, playing on the basketball team, culinary class, and making lifelong friends. One thing I miss there is the FOOD! Heather was the best. Teachers let you call them by their first name, and I think it's more like one big family there than a school. I just wish it wasn't growing so much. There are a lot more kids than there used to be, and I liked it much better when it was a much smaller school.
