I`m not a student yet, I`m going to be next year though. At my grade school, people think "The Nerds" at school only go to Peterson.

We don't know where this school's attitude from. The office staffs are always so rude, never have smiles on their faces, never seem to be patient enough to answer parent's questions. We talked to at least 3 different staffs in this school and none of them seem friendly at all. The arrogant mandatory ...  Read more
