Well, at first my kid loved this school But just like all great things it came to an end. Sorry to say but here it goes my son has been bullied by the same kid not once, not twice but several times. I've been to the principal on several occasions, and I've talked to the superintendent once the only thing they have done several times is in school suspensions, and a few out-of-school suspension and they think they are getting through to the bully I strongly disagree. My son is not the only one Now I'm sitting in the police station. Filling out a police report on how the bully followed and chased my son home on his bicycle. So I hope this statement helps somebody else bulling problem at Grant middle school in Fairview hgts Illinois 62208. Because I don't believe they are even worried about what this is doing to my son not just physically. But emotionally has left him with little faith in trying to do the right thing.
