This school is awesome and does a great job with the kids academically and socially.
This school does nothing to protect your child from bullies. No matter how much you complain or visit the school in a week they will only take a note and then they go no further. They are weak and fearful of the kids that do the bullying. A huge disappointment when the child is supposed to feel safe at school.
