At this school students judge you for what you look like and not who you are. There are a lot of bullies that make it hard for kids on a daily basis. Its hard for students to focus on school rather than drama or gossip about them. Plenty of racial comments have been made and MANY children do not come to learn. There is little parent involvement that i have seen.
