Mary Walter is a pretty good school. Drama is very common though. Almost every day, there is a new drama. I am a 5th-grade student here and have been there for 6 years. The teachers are pretty good, and some of them are too strict, but, they are the teacher. Talking about drama again, if you try to defend yourself by saying stop! Get away from me! There is a big chance you will get a BIF for defending yourself and the person who was bullying you want to get a BIF

I do not like Mary Walter because every single student in that school always starts drama with my kid. But hey guess what when my kid beats one of the 4th grade student's i don't want to hear you crying to me or giving my kid a BIF for defending herself.
