My niece goes here and It breaks my heart. She is always on the look out to not be defending herself. Her mother has complained to several people and nothing has been done. She can't even focus on her grades she has been attacked several times. I can see why the grade for the school is a 3 on great schools but, in my opinion any school who doesn't do anything to mediate the kids into a healthy solution should not be working with children.
My son attends this school and the problem that I see is the school and parents. Parents depend on teachers to teach the students and babysit. Teachers are not babysitters they are teachers. Parents need to be teachers too and in charge of teaching their children respect and responsibility. I understand parents work for a living but if you decided to have children, teaching respect and responsibility will open many victory doors to that child. The problem with the school is that they do not make parents aware if the student is having problems in class. A phone call or a letter by mail helps, very simple. If a student is failing, the teachers need to inform the parent. If the school and parents work together with the students, they will have a brighter future and this school (teachers and principal) can be very successful.
I have a child that is attending this school. And it is awful. all my complaints fall upon deaf ears!! The children at this school run a muck, the thing I find funny is you can get bad grades and still be sports,
