I think this school needs more work. I am currently a Freshman, and I expected better. It is not organized, and the administration should be better. Of course, I have school pride, but I just want this campus to become a better place.

It's a great facility. The faculty and staff are very kind and generous. The teaching could be a bit better, though they are good teachers.
