This school is great, other than some kids. I think the teachers are nice also, but I was hurt when one teacher looked through papers to MAKE SURE I was the right one. Other than that, great school. The teachers in lunch though don't pay attention to cutting in line, which bugs me, because a huge clump of kids are at the front all the time. This was before covid, and no one did anything about it. And I was told by a student older than me, that the 8th graders don't have tardies. This might be false, but still. This is all.

I am the vice principal, and I am completely exhausted by the lack of engagement by lazy parents. Our kids are given unfettered access to their phones, and it is out of control. The parents in this community are letting their kids run wild and it needs to stop. We cant do this by ourselves.
