I went to this school and promoted from it in 2010. It was a very nice school, but there were a lot of problems with many of the teachers in 8th grade. They weren't as helpful as they used to be. Though the office staff is very wonderful and most of the teachers are not.

This school is actually REALLY GOOD. There are a few fights every now and then, but usually they don't last long because the security there is pretty fast.
