New Richmond Middle School has teachers and staff that obviously care. The problems we had with the school were that the policies on how to deal with bullies are ineffective. Groups of children prey on the victims and the teachers' hands are tied by the supposed importancy of "privacy" for the bullies. On top of that, it's hard to use the websites that list school assignments and they're often not updated. Our child ended up falling behind due to bad information, even though there was weekly contact between us and the teachers. They could improve greatly if they were willing to make an example of children that do stupid, cruel things to other children. Instead, they're stuck on being "fair" to that kid that was horrible to another.
