When the school entered AYP this year, I took the opportunity to pull my student out. I was actually scared for the safety of my child at HOI. The administration really needs to get their act together. I have heard of several incidents of weapons being brought to the school. Recently the principal left a BB gun in his OPEN office, and it was taken by a student home and then back to school.
