The Teachers are excellent. Constant replies to contact. Always trying to find way to help students.The problem are the Students themselves, my son and several others have had to leave the school because of Physical Bullying. I know of several others who just don't have the money to leave. It is a shame that I have to worry about my childs life (no exaggeration) the bigger boys are forcefully playing the choking game. Either nothing is reported, or the students do not listen, but nothing was done.
