My child is being bullied on the school bus. I have to take him to school and pick him up as much as I can. A good student that is afraid of going to school or to say anything.

My grandson is having a terrible time at this school. He has reported that he is being bullied and is offered no help. Today he was assaulted by a student and in an attempt to defend himself, he was the one that is being punished!

My child had a horrible experience at this school this year 2009-2010 and after it was reported, it not only continued to go on, nothing at all was done to stop it or to discipline the ones involved. Good luck if your son/daughter goes to this school. Beware of the administration also.
