Great school. No problems other than a few fights..

This school is so full of violence, hate, cussing, and just generally unruly children. The teachers do seem to care and try but it does not seem to be helping. The new principal has NOT made things better, only worse. My children will not go there again.

Violence is rampant and the rules for suspension are rarely honored.
