When reporting bullying they go after the victim not the bully. Administration (AP)is lacking and ineffective. Bullying is never handled by addressing the bully. My child trusted the staff and they seriously let him down.

the academics are okay because the teachers are all experienced and know how to explain things. We have great character and support at this school and no bullying for the most part. The facility is kept very clean although the building is old and u can easily hear the people in the room next to you. THey have great extracurricular activities that help with school and athletics. The other students here are great and the principal is especially good, along with the Spectrum teacher, Mrs. Wilfong
