Posted May 27, 2013

I removed my children from this school halfway through the 2011-2012 school year when my oldest child began to be harassed and bullied both verbally and physically and discriminated against by other student's because of her race. These incidents were reported to the Principal and assistant principal and nothing was ever done. My child , who has always loved school and is a very social person became withdrawn and sad, and would burst into tears at having to attend this school. They are now somewhere where they are very happy and challenged and in an environment that strongly promotes hard work and achievement and bullying is not tolerated.

I took my child out of this school because she was being bullied and the teachers and staff refused to do anything about it. This school is almost completely hispanic and that makes it hard for any other races to fit in.
