I hated this school! The principal dresses a bit inappropriately at times (ie. for a fundraiser, we could buy a normal shirt, and she got one and made it a v-neck) and there's a lot of students in each class, even 30. Some teachers are good, some are horrible. The major field trips are kind of bad compared to other schools: in 6th, a one night stay at Camp MacLean, in 7th, a short cruise with a dinner, and in 8th, a trip to Springfield. Here's the catch about Springfield: you wake up at 4 or 5 in the morning, get to school, and your parents pick you up at night. It's not even an overnight stay! Teachers focus a bit too much on test scores and Advisory is boring and unfair now. There isn't a lot of bullying, but when it happens, it's horrible. Overall, I hated this school.
