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

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!

The principal and the teachers are not serious and responsible, many times have I asked the principal for a meeting and they are always busy, they have no communication with the parents.
