This school doesn't handle bullying whatsoever and the Principal doesn't have any control. She allows kids to film (and post on social media) themselves dancing their way up to her office, like it is a joke, when she was to question them about a bullying situation. The student being bullied eventually was taken out and put on an independent study by the parent, due to zero consequences being dealt out. Nothing happened to anyone of these students, even though they have a zero tolerance for this (taken out of extracurricular activities, etc.). This especially concerning considering what just happened in the neighboring Moreno Valley district, where a student died from being bullied. Something needs to happen. Such a disappointment and I was actually considering transferring my child here. Not anymore. If it was my child, they would be talking to my lawyer.
