(2009-2015 student) students were great, some teachers were not.

I remember coming here as a kid. I'm not religious, it was just the closest school to my home at the time. The students, whom some are still my friends to this day, are amazing. Most of the teachers however, not so great.
I recall one time they passed out bananas in class when I was 8. I had sensory issues as a child and so I did not like bananas. One of the teachers practically belittled me for not eating it and it was force fed to me.
On the bright side, few teachers were great. Unfortunately they do not work there anymore.

I've heard ever since my year group left the school went completely downhill. Quite recently (maybe a year ish?) there was an investigation about the principal pinning kids against walls. I really hope this is not the same principal as the one that was at school the time I was there. Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if it was. She was pretty strict.

Overall I rate most of the student 10/10, and perhaps most of the teachers 3/10. I'm glad my little brother was not sent here before we moved away.
