Im in this school it's pretty good except for staff they never pay attention EVER. In lunch my friend once asked if she could go to the bathroom to clean a little blood from a cut and the staff didn't even let her finish speaking he just said go sit down.

Concern for students in the school is seriously lacking, I have literally witnessed teachers berate elementary school students in the hallway. The office staff is decrepit, and it is nearly impossible for them to respond to a serious question without rolling what is left of their eyes at you. From the enrollment to the withdrawal process

The quality of teachers and administration at this school has diminished immensely. I used to gladly be such an involved parent and refuse to dedicate any more of my time to help this school in any way. There is very little regard for parents and students. Their only concern is for teachers and their well being no matter what they do or how poor of an educator they are. I have decided to remove my child from this school as soon as possible.
