My daughter along with several children at this school get bullied regularly! I have seen little attention brought to the issue! I know a couple different families in our neighborhood alone who have pulled their kids out all together and home school just so their children do not have to be bullied at this school!

I also have had 2 children go to this school yes I very much agree that it needs some updating in the worste way I belive the staff tries to do a good job with what they have with a new year about to start I hope we will see some good changes

Although it is true that this school is not as updated as some others...which is not the school's fault, but the basic financial inequality inherent in all school systems... the teachers are warm and caring and (for the most part) enthusiastic, and work very hard to keep the kids on task and learning with the resources they have. Don't blame the lack of upgrading on the teachers; we all know how hard a job that is, and there are difficult students in every school.

I had three children in this school. My children also encountered four times as many illnesses. I don't believe the school is very sanitary, especially in the portables.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 28, 2007

The portables are in poor shape and I can see why the children have trouble learning in such an environment. The teachers and guidance staff seem to only rely on book knowledge to deal with students and have no consideration for the fact that all children are different. If they have a problem with a student they tell the parent far too late to do any correction and the children have no respect for school officials.
