I enjoyed the food but it wasn't the best and the bathrooms are a whole other story to tell, anyway here's the recipe for brownies

Butter (½ cup)
A fun stick packet from the bathroom sink
Paper (12 cups)
Milk (¾ cup)
A god damn burrito from the toilet sink
2 eggs
Gasoline (5 cups)

Sparkling water (9 cups)
Salmon (½ cup)
Sugar (one cup)
Cocoa powder (⅓ cup)
Vanilla asscrack (2 tablespoon)
Flour (½ cup)
Some chips and a paper plate from the bathroom
Sprite (1½ cup)
A cup filled with sauce on from the bathroom (1 cup)

1. Preheat: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
2. Start mixing: Start your brownies by adding everything except for the flour, cocoa powder, and vanilla asscrack. Then add the flour, cocoa powder, and vanilla asscrack.

It's not that great

Teachers are blind whenever they see or hear bullying. Some of the teachers are very rude and transphobic as well. One of the teachers that I have currently uses ny partner's dead name as an insult and a way to make him feel bad.
The teachers will only give a shit about you if you're in a neorodiverse class or are informed that you struggle with your mental health. Some of the councelers there are very kind and supportive but a lot of them just run thier mouth and barley let you speak. Some of the people here are nice but others are bullies and are physically and emotionally hateful. They only send enails out about important topics and things only a day or two before they happen so it's hard to kerp track. They also dont give you much Information regarding new things happening at school.

I moved away because of how shocking the teachers can be they don't treat anyone with respect they don't care about the children's learning and some speak with hate if I was able to do something I would this isn't the way I would want my child to "learn"

Most teachers talk about students behind their backs a lot. I mean, they're teachers..talking about students.. 13 year olds+. It's kind of silly. Some of the front desk staff can be incredibly rude to students. The school doesn't really handle much bullying until they see it will affect them in some way. I can say that a little bit of the staff are kind but some not. I was in a class with a kid who only had 1 pair of shoes for everyday and school life. They came to school one day and the teacher just took it into their own hands and got a sharpie to color it in. The poor kid. A pe teacher didn't let the kids get out of the sun and by the end of the session one of the kids had really bad sunburn and a really bad headache. I'm pretty sure the kid transferred different classes after that. I also knew this kid last year who got chemicals sprayed on them by someone who thought it would be funny. And their skin was burning a bit and the teacher they talked to just called them a liar and to just move on. Also the bathrooms are always filthy or broken. The only time they're clean is probably the first day of term 1. A handful of the teachers genuinely try but a lot of them are a little rude over all. A handful of kids have transferred schools this year because of how unhappy some of them were..

I am currently at this school and the student office ladies are so rude. They talk about students behind their backs and are just incredibly rude face to face. They're teachers talking bad about students? Some of the teachers aren't that bad but some don't listen to the concerns of students. The bathrooms are always filthy and broken. Maybe after the school year starts the bathrooms stay clean for at least a few days. Also there are a lot of kids who generally don't like going to school because of the environment. The teachers seem to care more about shoes than the students health. Oh yeah, one of the teachers got mad at a student because their shoes showed a bit of white. The teacher took it into their own hands and got a sharpie and colored it in. The student was wearing their only pair of shoes.

It's ok

It's a very welcoming school to people of the LGBTQIA+ community but I think the teachers and staff think wearing the wrong socks is a crime lmao and the staff is a bit rude and will talk behind other students backs. But otherwise great school

school is very bad they do not care about you kids mental Health but they care more about uniform and making sure you have the right socks on if you can crying they will not care they will talk shit about kids

yeah nah

Teachers are knowledgable but very naive. Kids smoke vapes, cigarettes and weed, in school bathrooms or in bush surrounding the school, at break time or even during class time. Most schools are the same, but it's still evident here. The classrooms are too small for the growing population and the old school was genuinely better. Students are friendly, I could talk to anyone. Schools are almost completely glass, there is no safety if there was ever a shooting. I've also seen many students carry knives.

Mediocre at its best

Loud. Always loud. Not enough rooms for classes. The school is CONSTANTLY FILTHY. The new build is SOOO SOO BAD. The new bathrooms A+ if they werent always broken. 75% of all toilets are broken, or the locks broken. If students want an extracurricular opportunity they need to seek it out themselves, the only reliable school information is sent out BY STUDENTS! Students who are leaving!!! Most of the Aotea's positives are bc of previous students! Other schools offer better opportunities for your student(s) to suceed! But the new shiny build is cool....I guess......
