I think that the teachers are very kind, and they do their best to help every student who attends this facility, but I still have a severe problem. The rules state that it is against the school policy to bully another student, yet I can see now that some of the students think it is ok not to follow these rules. I have been constantly bullied throughout the year, and I only just now notified the teachers. I believethat this would have been a wonderful school, if not for the students. They physically and verbally bully their peers and their excuse is always "lighten up! It was only a joke!" But this is NOT a joking matter. Because of them, I come home crying almost every night dreading my return to this place the next morning. I do think that the staff could do better to prevent this from happening, as most of this happens right under their noses. So please, if you are a parent looking at this, think wisely about who your child might be going to school with based on this statement.
