    I am a 7th grader at this school and I really love it freinds to meet teachers to greet and lunch to eat. I love my freinds at this school and the princable is ery funny but aproprite for the school. Their is a little bit of drama. And a little bit of craziness! No bullies and its easy to make freinds! Also if you are sad or down or if your mad at your freind or peer there is a guidence consler to talk to even a therapy dog to help out. THIS IS THE BEST SCHOOL ever also plesant view elementry is a very nice school ecpesicly in sixth grade!! BYE!
