I agree with some of the other parents. Bullies and thieves !!! I don't know if other schools have this issue, but I know Mcadory does ! I was told my child could use a tablet/iPod for educational purposes and to use Ebooks , but then his iPod was stolen ! I wish there would be more focus on punishing bullies and thieves !

One word. Bullies. Another word. Thieves. Don't let your children bring anything nice to school or it will end up missing. Can't keep things from being taken from other students desks. Not enough supervision, and they just go wild.

I hate how some of the kids here think they own it, they boss others around, steal your stuff. I video Recorded some of the things that only a small majority of the students did. And just hate it.

It is not a perfect school but some of the people are very nice. I like some of the people. I think that they need to give us more time to drain our energy and let us sit anywhere we want in the mornings before school.
