By a Former Student on

The teachers are awesome! It is just that some of the 13 yr old students that cuss too much(believe me, I hear them all the time)! There is so much talking in some of the classrooms and very little control. But all in all every student and teacher that doesn't cuss is kind and encouraging! GO WOLVERINES!!!!!!!!!!      :)
