Canyon Crest has dramatically gone downhill after the new principal Cunningham came. She is a cold-hearted person, never pays attention to what kids need the most. She only cares about herself and her reputation. She plays favors and never makes time to listen to each individual thoughts and opinions. Teachers constantly without support and encouragement.
