I have kids in this school for 7 years and I love the teachers. They are always very helpful and supportive of the students. I had to withdraw them do to the new principal. He never has time for parents, refuses meetings and he can never be found when you go in there. He uses juvenile detention as a scare tactic for the children. I believe this is nothing more than bullying. It's my understanding he doesn't go into the classes to check on things and his office is used for hair cuts.

I am not a parent, but I student teach at this school. After working with students and a lot of the faculty, I have found that everyone really works together to make this school the best environment possible. The teachers want to get involved in the student's life so that what they teach in the classroom can be reinforced at home too.
