I went to that school, and now I started to regret going there. The classes I went to, the homework was to finish up the classwork, which most times I got no homework (I often behaved well during class and do the classwork that the teachers give me). The classwork was easy for me to do, and I just sit there and wait for the next instructions that the teachers were suppose to do. This is from a ninth grader who was in this school before.
