So far the bus driver is only the one I find genuine. The teacher calls and complains to me most of the time than trying to work things out for my girl on the first week of her day there. We moved from a good school with great teachers to this one. A teacher here made my child feel like she is miserable and supposedly blame it on me. Since my child got here she hated this school and tells me that people there call her names. A friend of hers got bully to the extreme. I don't even know if she did something educational everyday cause her works only pile up at the end of the week and it matches up to what she would do in two days compare to her old school. I am not a happy camper here. I use to know the princepal and she is one kind lady. Besides that I don't know.

I have had my own issues trying to get my child the curriculum she needs and they can't keep her busy. My friend just moved here from a smaller population and her 4th grader has been bullied to the most extreme level, all they do is have the kids have "a sitdown" like that really works they have a real kids will be kids attitude and it is causing severe emotional harm. These bullies have gone so far as to push her down in a creek in 35 degree weather.
