This is by far the worst school I`ve every stepped foot in. The teachers and staff members could care less about these kids. It`s sad just because they come fromLow income families they treat them like trash. Just making another statistic to throw to the streets. My son gets bullied but yet he gets in trouble for standing up for himself. Just awful. I will do whatever it takes to get my kids away from this school. Parents do you and your children a favor and keep them AWAY FROMTHIS SCHOOL!!!
