The school and buses are out of control. The principal does nothing to control the situation. The principal doesnt notify the parents if something happens with or to your child. The principal and office staff dont seem to be knowledgeable about what goes on in the school with the kids. Most importantly the principal and office staff are not professional.

Some good teachers but the bad outway the good. Some ar just horrible. Bullyig is rampant in the school and as much as the administration says there is a zero tollerance theytake no action so it continues, overcrowded classrooms they are all pretty much at maximum capacity.
