There have been multiple threats to close this school stating that it is persistently failing but despite all this Lehman has upgraded its overall report card from an "F" to a "D" The fact that it has changed at all through many administrative takeovers is a miracle.

The school has severely plummeted. Students are wild and outrageous. Constant problems and conflict arise between classes. It is impossible to keep the hallway clear and quite.
