School Reviews

at this school because of my African race i am always put down and bullied. Everything at that school is about money and race. I wish i never went to this school. so far these 2 years have been pure mockery. They don't treat students of color equally and you have to pay to register for the next school year. At an event you have to pay for a ticket and then bring your own stuff. Everyone has to bring a different item.
