    The school is very over populated.There is over 35 kids in every class. My cousins daughter has a class with over 45 students, this is rediculus! I want to pull them out. There are many gangs and the school isn't doing much to expell or find out about them. I have seen the security and they don't do much to enforce the rules!!!!!!!!! I have decided I Will pay for neices and nephews to go to mater dai, were they won't come home threatened by nacturnal and gk. They need a better principal if you ask me.....someone not afraid of highschool students. I went there many years ago and it was very safe, what has happened? The only languages they teach are spanish and french( the required ones ) I'm so outraged!!! The testing scores are so low!
