Need help with a short translation

I am working on translating a survey with multiple choice answers for children in grades 3-6, and I'm having a hard time translating the following sentence "I neither like nor dislike school".

My best attempt is "Ni me agrada ni desagrada la escuela" is there another way I can translate it that will be simple for kids in elementary school to understand

Thank you

I agree with Rusty

· La escuela ni me agrada ni me desagrada
· La escuela ni me gusta ni me disgusta
· La escuela ni me agrada ni me disgusta
· La escuela ni me gusta ni me desagrada

If they have more vocabulary:
· La escuela me es indiferente
