I hate it. Here's why my daughter has been recently getting bullied and I've talked to the teachers, the principal and they did nothing but just to ignore me. My daughter has been so bullied that she locks herself in her room and she simply ignores me because she thinks I do nothing about it. I had to do something, and I changed schools. Now she goes to John Pershing elementary school, and she loves. It, this school has many excellent reviews and I think this school is perfect for my daughter. This school is full of amazing and kind people. I just want to thank all the teachers and co ulcers that helped my daughter have her best times in John Pershing elementary school.
