In response to the recent post, I feel bad that your child has been the victim of bullying. However, I have noticed that bullying is snuffed out very quickly. The only time it goes on is when students to not report it. We don't cater to the minorities. The majority of the student population is minority, possibly as high as 86%. We see no color at our school. Everyone is a human being that deserves respect. As far as field trips, that is the policy of the Des Moines Public School District. We get "1" field trip a year. The school does not make that decision. Submitted by staff.

The school stresses in flyers no bullying yet it goes on and it's he'd to get results. The school seems to cater to the minorities as only certain children revive informations regarding different opportunities such as shoes that fit. The teachers I have felt with do seem to have the children's academic success in mind. There are just so many kids in each class it's hard to monitor all going on's in the classroom. The school has changed since my other child attend when they first opened. Not all grades were able to go on end of the year frills trips.
