My heart goes out to any child that must attend this school as the support just isn’t there. The school has a seemingly vibrant principal seeking to change the stigma surrounding the school, but it simply falls short. My child experienced two teachers quitting mid-school yr. and struggled through coursework with inconsistent substitutes, as an honor student seldom received work to maximize her potential, and there were constant bullying issues that took numerous phone calls/visits to the school to remedy. If it can at all be avoided, please give your child a chance somewhere else.

My son has been bullied since the first week of school, two weeks after he was assaulted by another student. My son mentioned that there was a teacher present and witnessed the entire incident but didn't do anything about it; she told the kids to go back to class as if this was a normal and tolerable behavior. Another two weeks went by, my son was finally doing a lot better with the students there, then another kid punched him in the back. This was my last straw, I had to pull him out of this school entirely and transferred him to a private school. The Administrators, front desk, Police Officer including the Vice Principle was very helpful but it didn't stop the bullying. I suggest that every kid who bullies another kid should have "Parental Counseling." Remember where the roots came from; parents who lacks on discipline and being attentive to a child causes them to behave a certain way in a school environment, these parents should receive counseling by law.

My son has been going to this school less than 4 months and has been through it all. Kids here are allowed to bully other kids and teachers look the other way with no intentions to stop it. my son has gotten into fights that he did not start. Based on what I was told from the teachers. He has gotten beaten in the head on different occasion in his science class all the teacher had to say was " boys will be boys" He is in the 7th grade the bullying goes from the class To the hallways. I asked for a change in classes to try to resolve the issue they did it however, This school has groups of thugs that run in packs. I don't wake my child up every morning to get dress to go to a war zone. that is the feeling I get. I will be taking him out of this school very soon! but beware if your child attends this school. the principal has never contacted me on any incident! I'm outraged
