I have a child who also goes to this school. I feel that children are able to get away with the bullying and haustile environment. We send our children to school to be in a safe and welcome environment I do not feel this is the case here. Yes there are cameras. The cameras are not doing justice. Please get more faculty for passing times and lunch times.

I have one child currently attending this school and find the curriculum adequate. However the environment is hostile and bullying is rampant, during lunch periods, while class is in session and even during passing time between classes. I will definitely be seeking a better education school. I will never recommend this school based on talking to several students from this school.
