There is a mixture of good teachers and ineffective careless teachers. The English and Math departments seem to have the largest percentage of ineffective teachers I have come across. The biggest issue is the teachers keeping their students grades updated in Parentlink and I can't count how many times I have had to contact a teacher about misplacing an assignment that was turned in, so much disorganization!
No, they do not listen to students or parents of students being bullied by the groups of thugs that attend their school and they are aware of who these individuals are. They do not act until someone gets jumped and injured and they do not allow the victims to defend themselves during an attack.
If you want your kids to attend a high school that is rampant with several groups of wanna-be gang banger thugs who thrive on starting confrontations, carry weapons (guns) outside of school, jump people, rob people, deal drugs & threaten people inside and outside of campus and at football games, (going by names such as Porkchop, TayTay, Jaybird), that school admin is completely aware of and flat out ignores, then this is the school for your kids!
(Side note: Heroine and other drugs are a scourge among the other group of students from wealthy families.)
The administration does absolutely nothing about these groups or this issue but turn a blind eye as they and their "monitors" sit and watch by the sidelines while these groups of thugs blatantly bully students in the lunch room, hallways and common areas. Apparently instigating fights on campus, spitting on fellow students and stepping up on them and pulling the "race card" as an excuse for their thug behavior and bullying students is perfectly acceptable and allowed. The ONLY time that school admin steps in is after the fact when fists have been thrown! Forget the admin being proactive and stepping in when they see this about to happen and preventing it in the first place by following the school districts Policy 5137. I have never been so disgusted with a school and its administration in my life!
