    My experience at this school was terrible. Honestly I am still angry at the way other students mistreated me and the way the teachers ignored it. Don't be fooled by their unenforced "Bully-Free Zone" policy it is a horrible school full of uncaring people who bullied me to the point of suicidal thoughts. It's a shame the lowest rating is unsatisfactory it does not begin to describe how I really feel.

    Oh my gosh! This school was awesome! I'm going to be an 8th grader soon after summer ends I love it so much! There was so many nice people and nice teachers who care about how you do on tests assessments and homework they will even give up their lunch time for you! Since in like a month im going to be an 8th grader I am hoping to meet new people and have fun with my last year as a middle schooler. If you do your best it will go by so fast you will never regret going to this school. I also think that in my years of being in that school since 6th grade its been a BLAST and stay away from drama there is A LOT of rules in that school and who ever is going to this school will have a good time!

    I just graduated from this school. Everything was pretty good until this past year. Many new and unimportant and pointless were enforced. For example it became much harder to get on the computers in the library. The eighth grade was yelled at more than often for "not following kindergarten rules" Well... we aren't in kindergarten. Also money was spent on getting PROMETHEAN BOARDS IN EVERY CLASSROOM. Now our school has almost no money. They could have saved it until they really needed the money but no we had to get the HEALTH TEACHERS Promethean boards. Of course.

    I find this school very entertaining and educational. I love how the students change over time and not just physically. I love how the students can have relationships with the teachers on a school Basis.
