Favoritism amongst teachers and students alike and they blame the person for 100s of peers for making fun of them

Terrible. The students are treated unfairly and no staff members seem to care.They get afterschool's and Friday school detention for the most unimportant things , the teachers and staff abuse their power and often laugh and talk about kids, right to their faces. Rude!!!!!

Terrible school. My son was afraid to eat in the cafateria because of the bullying and fights. I had a meeting with an English teacher because my son was doing poorly. She had far worse grammer than myself, my son, or my foriegn born husband. Her overall negative attitude and hostility towards me for scheduling the meeting was very uncomfortable. I came home from the meeting and put my house up for sale.

Terrible school, I have one out, one in, and another will be going in the next 2 years. The teachers and staff, most of them, not all, are more concerned with being the kids friend and being cool then discipline or structure. The children who need help and guidance are kicked out and the ones who are habitual offenders are allowed to continue on. It all depends on who they are and, sorry to say, what they color they are. Unless you are African American, not mixed, white or Hispanic, I wish you luck not getting looked over, abused, or discriminated. I can't wait until all my kids are through pierce and at the high school, which is much better.

Very good education school. My son was scared starting because he entered in the middle of the year because we had moved to Indiana all the way from Arizona. I am very pleased with this school. and my child loves it , and WILL CERTAINLY be returning next year (:
