I believe New Boston, Texas schools are great. Although, there's a lot of fighting and bullying going on. We don't show much of a prime example to the younger students who aren't in high school yet. Hoepfully all of this changes.

All of the above are good. However, my concerns are on bullying in all of New Bostons Schools. Totally destroy others' outlook on education, friendships and there future.
