On Sports & Fitness: I did not do much of anything with the school. I do not know what to say.

On Administration & Policies: Kids do not care anymore how they are punished. You can send them to detention and it will not effect them at all. Make them do laps around the school or something. Find a way to make their mental state be effected.

On Educational Outcomes: I think the school focuses on football to much. The teachers are ok, but they seem bullied by the government. The government needs to step away and start allowing teachers to teach. Teachers don't teach anymore they recite because they are afraid they will loose their jobs if their students test scores are low. The nurses are great and the new improvements are amazing too.
