This school does nothing about bulling. Kids are just encouraged to suck it up and deal with it. This is unacceptable and needs to be addressed. I have tried several times to address this situation and get it resolved, to no avail so far. I now have to resort to driving my child to another school each day so she can get a good education and not get bullied in the process. This puts an extra burden on our family since we now need to drive our child to school each day and go in late for work because the school can't seem to resolve their bulling issues.
This school does so much for the kids- especially about encouraging them to succeed academically and pursue college. The principal is great and isn't afraid 'to get dirty' and really make things happen- I don't think I ever saw him get a minute to rest the whole time I was there! I had the privilege to observe and work with several teachers during my first semester in my Master's Plus Teaching License program and I loved it! -
