On Resources & Facilities: The average time from the house to my school is sometimes a hassle. The city buses sometimes come too early or sometimes too late. It is usually crowded, but mostly more crowded in the afternoon. Overall, it's a great way to get there than actually walking. The driver is always doing his/her job.

On Food: The cafeteria in this school is not the best but it's not the worst. We do offer a healthy meal for everyone. The variety in this school comes with fruits, vegetables, meal, milk and juices. Some of the food offer here are great and that's why sometimes they run out of that meal.

On Teachers: The teachers at J.H.S. are the best but aren't the worst as well. Depending on what teachers are chosen for you. Some teachers enjoy teaching and actually educating the students. Then there are some teachers who don't know how to control the class, doesn't teaches well, and have no enthusiasm in there work. It could also be the students who are giving the teachers a hard time. Overall, if you stay after school with the teachers you can achieve more in the class than the average students.
