    This was a terrible school I attended I don't recommend it.If you're a good student already say goodbye to that this school is full of bad students that will pressure you and change you.They have very cruel language I haven't met a single student that hasn't cursed at least once.On top of it there are lots of fights . Don't go to this school.
