    this school is sometimes great but a real pain most of the time i sometimes cant participate in classroom activities in gym class due to my disabilities you see i'm in a wheelchair and this school neglects me at times. There were even 4 times that the school was unable to get a wheelchair accessible for me so i was unable to go on some field trips with my peers and one time something had happened in the cafeteria and everyone was ordered to evacuate from the school except for me as for me i was ordered to go in between some black doors they have in the hall way and someone would help me get out but i had to wait for 20min.
