Leave the kids alone that want to try and get the kids who don't care out of there.Stop picking on the kids that are having an awkard year finding themselves and give them a chance to get back on track instead of brushing them off when they try. The principal is not the problem the teachers are.

The Principal needs to go!They need to recognize the problems and fix them rather then brush them under the rug. The majority of the teachers in GMS need to look into a new profession as they should not be teaching. There are a select few that are truly Great Teachers and there should be more like them!

Time to get rid of the Principal. The Superintendant has already gone. The problem lies with them. The school remains in denial of any problems. Constant cover up. All the families who have been able to move away ... have moved!! What is left?? SCARY!!
