In my opinion. The new principle and teachers are doing the best they can. They are new and trying to work out the mess that has been left behind. With time I can see an improvement. As with any school that had a former principle and teachers that didn't care it takes time to restructure. I have noticed a strong willingness from principle and teacher to improve things. It won't happen over night. But I foresee with time things will change. The school Starts way to early in the morning ! Children are tired. Other schools start later the reason for this is a rested child is more willing to learn. Before the new staff bullying was blown off. The old principle aloud my child to be bullied. It's not allowed now. Drop off was a mess in the past. As I've mentioned before there are several kinks to be worked out in this school. But I'm noticing people with a strong willingness to improve things. And it's a positive thing for me.
