They students are being giving 1st and 2nd grade work, and they really can't tell you whats going on because they are too focused on the girls and boys fighting and not being punished for it. They are supposed to be in school 180 days but instead my son is always home because all four of the teachers are always sick and they are being release just because. I was told that there are not any athletics at that school and that he would really like to play some sports. The kids there are basically making babies there. I believe this school should be shut down until they could get it under control. My neice was ganged at this school and no actions were tooken.
