May School is TERRIBLE and I wish I had never transferred my 2 kids from their previous school. But, being a parent who is concerned for their safety, I didnt want them traveling on 2 CTA buses to school. I should have let them travel. Never have I seen children like these. Yes, the principal and the disciplinarian are males but, they can only do so much which isn't nearly enough. As far as having gym, i would rather they have more reading or math. The overall test scores are so low that they only scored 1 out of 10!! Get real. Gym isn't that important when you have those kinds of results. I am currently in the process of finding another school that will take them and have higher educational standards.
