In this school African Americans are the majority aswell as the administrative staff. My daughter attends this school and has had to deal with bullying from the same group of students since their summer programs. We have talked to several members of the administration about the issue and they claim to be handling it. They say they will not allow bullying or any drama in the school, and that if it continues the kids will be removed from the school. The issue has continued to occur with nothing being done about it. The bullying includes pushing, shoving, cussing, and emtional/verbal abuse. There has also been an issue with high school girls who are not allowed on the 6th grade level of the school coming down and threatening my 6th grade daughter in the bathroom. Still no resolution. I would like it to be known my daughter is white and every student harassing her is black, and the administrative staff we talked to about this are black. So of course this issue has not been resolved ed or even brought to the attention of the Dean of the school. This school is supposed to be teaching leadership and helping teach our girls on a higher level so that they will succeed further then in a regular public school, but apparently the application process has flaws that allows girls without any disipine or manors to be let in, and let them act anyway they want In the school just as they do in their streets. I am pulling my daughter out and filing suit against the school. I would not advise anyone to send their kids to this school.
