I have viewed the violence among youth from kindergarten & higher (having temper tantrums, throwing furniture, vulgar screaming, hitting & kicking teachers). Very under educated, and the school is run down, holes in ceilings & has no clean water fountains for the children. I WOULD BE FEARFUL FOR MY CHILD TO ATTEND HERE!!!!! NO child left behind AT LEAST MAKE SURE THEY ARE EDUCATED!! JUST TERRIBLE!!!
