i am very pleased with how they handle everything here

Mr. Miklas needs to come back for the sake of the children. This new principal Mr.Banks is taking this school down fast. He is not there to help, encourage or support these students. Handles situations with quick punishment of suspension instead of listening to students and approaching manners in a different way. When he is questioned by the parents he is quick to be dismissive and shut the conversation down while not be held accountable for his actions or lack of. Extremely unfair with his judgement and punishment, these students are losing respect for him and so are the parents.

I think that the principal (which is named by the website) Mr. Miklas is doing a very good job of trying to create a Great school. Kudos go out to him. I just don't feel he has as much support as he needs to fully accomplish that goal right away. One day my son may return, but at this time I am probably switching him for next year. This is due to various things: From the busses (which is a separate issue), to the lunches never being what is on the menu; to no one walking the little kids to their busses; to his class being so large; to his Gen Ed teacher not really seeming to care about her students; to his Spec. Ed teacher seeming to go back & forth between caring and professional to not so much; to not getting a call at work (only a vm on cell) about my son throwing up at school (when they have 3 numbers available to contact); to the nurse/nurse's secretary not being very nice nor accommodating to my son when he broke out in hives; to the main office staff not being friendly or personable; to Art on a Cart & Music on a Cart (this is so upsetting to me because children are not getting anything close to the full effect of these classes); etc.
