    I think that it is a great school with an amazing Robotics team and they teach you more how to take responsibility for the things you've done and what they try to do is keeping the students happy in the school and they've done a great job on doing that

    very enternaining school, lots of great teachers except one who constantly calls me another Indian students name. She then gets angry when i correct her. This is rascism at its finest. I've had her for 3 terms.
