    Overall Experience: I like the diversity this school provides for my kids. My experience to date has been for the most part good. My daughter is in the top 10% of her class.

    Overall Experience: I had some moments of fun at the school, but if I looked back at it I would say it wasn't all that great of a time.

    Food: The lunch most of the time wasn't all that great. Very plain and filled with a punch of processed foods.

    Administration & Policies: The guidelines that school had were all quite reasonable. Anyone that thought otherwise had quite a short fuse to them.

    In my specific grade, there really wasn't any bullying; we weren't all friends but we knew each other and didn't mess with each other.
