Gale School 2

Teachers push medication over the smallest am out of inattentiveness. No funding! Teaches distraught over heir lack of pay and losing the teachers union strike. Lunch room the children are packed in the gym like sardines then get screamed at if they speak to one another. They refuse to pull out all the tables so the kids can actually move their arms to eat. Bullies are rampant and mothers in the pto run the school along with their children who are treated with special treatment from staff. Thr school district is catered to the who's who in this small financially dying tOwn.

I enjoyed this school and the friendliness of the staff however, they have no clue when it comes to efficiency which causes a great problem to a household were both mom and dad work. The system for picking your kids up after school is severely lacking, and I am terrified my children are going to be ran over or I'm going to get in a car accident on a regular basis. they have no bus system the drops children off at their houses, and we live too far away to expect my children to walk. Also the online website does not have all activities/events posted. So knowing the appropriate time to pick your kids up from school is nearly impossible and less you're a stay-at-home mom that has time to schedule everything with the random scraps of paper that come home and the children's bookbags.
