Great School but needs work.

As a leader on campus, there's a great vibe as I pass through the halls, but like any other high school, it has issues. Teachers need to take control of their students in the class, all student bathrooms must be opened because there are so many students, and the most difficult to change is the midset of the students. Unfortunately, there is no high school spirit.
