This is discussing .. horrible school. I am discussed the way this school runs . The principal, the teachers are the worst .. complete disaster. . I cannot believe the board of education allows this school to run like this... you cannot tell any education is being taught at this school. You can see the outcome clearly on the kids that come out of this school. .
