I actually go to Cherokee but my friend Cohen who went to McBride and Wilson's with me decided to go to Carver but he instantly regrets.

My child gets suspended and because of snow days gets punished for even longer because of mother nature, that no one can control... this school is ridiculous. Bullying is not addressed and, in fact, teachers and the vice principal turn their head to it. Unless your child is to make an A/B average, they don't take time to work with them. Also, until your child is failing the teachers don't, let the parents know that until it's pretty much too late to help them.....
