i feel as a parent Colona school is not acceptable. good / well behaved kids are punished with those that do not follow directions. There is no before care to help working parents, and the parental involvement is nothing to brag about. The leadership is really poor, my son had a teacher that cursed to the class and nothing was done about it because she is human. But you know if your kid slipped they would have served a detention and as a parent it would have inconveniened us by picking them up later since there is no bus service. If you have junior high student, I don't think this school is making the grade.
