I was there in the 90s and graduated in 2000. It was really good! I learned a lot, and the teachers were really helpful! I really enjoyed the yearly camping trips starting from Purple team, even though Purple team did not spend the night. Teacher Richard, who was the science teacher, was cool, and he had a summer camp. All the teachers were cool!
