I've been in this school for 3 years, and nothing has changed. Teachers: Most are Indian/Pakistani, which isn't a problem, but their accents and grammar is poor. Students: Most are Indian/Pakistani/Egyptian, which again, isn't a problem, but I can guarantee you that 100% of them no matter which country, they're all either really immature, really silly, really annoying, tasteless, or even all. The only students who aren't immature or silly or annoying are the smart ones. Principal, Vice Principal, and other staff: Some aren't respectful to parents, some are fine. Exams: This is what bothers me the most. Since all the years I've been in this school, they have to give us all lessons of all the terms we've been in, for example, in Term 3, the units and topics will be from what we learnt in the WHOLE YEAR. Not just that, in Term 2 we learn term 2 topics and term 1 topics. So we basically study the same thing but with more units over and over for a whole year. And once, there was a massive science exam, and as expected, the units were everything we took in the whole year. What did that cause? Anxiety, depression, physical and mental health problems, all at once. I can't even do my religious activities. That's not it. After all the pressure and torture, the only units that came in the exam was just from term 3 topics. That made depression worse, heavier, and stronger. And then comes the worst subject of all, Math. This subject took everything from me. It took all the happiness left in me. It took everything. The exam wasn't like the science exam, it was just too much. You expect us to study all the subjects we took in the whole year, in all the 365 days in this school? This doesn't feel like a school anymore. It feels like a concentration camp. In fact, all schools are like this anyway. Schools are basically prison for 6 hours. They give us a specific time to eat, same thing in prison. They give us unnecessary work to do that would never benefit us in our lives, same thing in prison. We should obey everything a person says, same thing in prison. Is this how schools should be? All those centuries and schools never changed. But anyways, back to this school. First off, giving us the same thing to learn in all terms is all out unacceptable. Second, giving us tons of work to memorize and then at the end giving us just 10% of what we learnt in the exam is absolutely barbaric. Rules: This is where it really doesn't make sense. There's this student in our class who CLEARLY cheats, and he cheated in all exams in all terms, and he didn't get any warning letters, despite the countless complains from students. And once, a teacher saw a student cheat clearly, and she LET HIM GET AWAY WITH IT. What is this? That's mental. Absolutely mental. And there's another student, who fought in the middle of the class, and they legitimately caused havoc, chaos and mayhem. And what did he get? An incident report. Fighting multiple times in the class does NOT deserve a piece of paper. He deserves to get expelled. There's 3 students like this. THREE. That's not giving mercy. That's even more torture for the students. They literally stop the teacher from teaching for the whole lesson. In just a sentence, the school gives the worst people the simplest punishments, no matter what they do. Even if the actions they do was a complete abomination of mankind, they won't get any sort of serious punishment. So, what does this school need to do? It needs to stop causing people to lose all their brain cells learning all the lessons in all the terms and then giving them 10% of what they learnt in the exam, they need to stop causing depression, anxiety, and pressure, they need to stop giving mercy to the worst students to ever step foot on the school property, and they should BE A NORMAL FUNCTIONING SCHOOL. Update: The school's exams are now even worse and extremely tiring. In the second term, most exams were on computer. But some parents somehow found it ''hard'' and complained. Now guess what? We have to do 2 EXAMS. One on computer and one on paper.
