My child is a 6th grader at Christensen. Some of the teachers do not seem to enjoy their jobs and have little passion for teaching. This leads to a lack of patience with middle school children, who are not the easiest age group to teach. Verbal bullying has been a big problem. From a parent perspective, there does not seem to be a larger anti-bullying program at the school that discusses bullying and its many forms, which allows for many instances of "I didn't know that would offend or hurt someone..." as a response.
