If it was not for the teachers my children would go elsewhere (well the ones still there who have not quit or been fired). Its sad in the past 8 years how many teachers have come and go and how many principals they have had.
The new principal is rude and does not know common courtesy. He talks to women differently. I have seen it first hand. In general, he never smiles and looks miserable.
My child can't learn in this environment. Other students are causing trouble in the classroom preventing my child from learning. Teachers do not do anything to discipline since their hands are tied by the new principal. When a principal sides with children and parents over teachers on all matters, this does not lead to a healthy learning environment.
