I have grandchildren that attend this school and participate in sports. My grandson has had things stolen from him three times, the level of bullying is ungodly, and the good kids don't want to go to shcool there because of the crap they have to take from the trash that is allowed to attend there. Try harder to catch a thief and do something about the bullies, would you? I have given too much money to programs at that school for my grandchildren to be afraid to go to school or just not want to go because of the way other people are acting. There are drugs in the school and heads turn if you are a sport star. People are talking but never do anything. These are our kids, people, do something please.
