Develops character: Disagree


- a parent
The principal intimidate the students and staff. Don't see how that's developing anything except fear



- a parent
This school has regress in the last 2 years. The principal removes programs that we're beneficial to the students and community, she has degraded the school with her comments and have threatened a lot of the teachers and staff with her power. She is a bully who gets what she wants. I'm not sending my child back there next year if she's going to be the principal. Horribly! Nightmare!




- a parent
