Her grandmother, after seeing her black eye, ended up having to call the school later in the day to find out what was going on?

TERRIBLE school!!! The kids are out of control and the teachers do NOTHING to stop it! There can not be any actual learning because the kids who want to cause problems take ALL the time away from instruction. Teachers are rude. Kids behave SO badly. No one wants to address the problems and fix it. Honestly this school needs to just shut down!!! These teachers just want to get a little paycheck and go home. The teachers barely arrive before the students! No planning or preparation! If you can keep your kid out of this school...GO TO ANOTHER SCHOOL!!!!

The high school graduation rate is in a constant state of change and dropout rates affect more than the individual student. Read on to learn about factors influencing high school graduation rates and what schools can do to improve them.
