The best thing that ever walked the hallways of this school was treated badly by the principal and a few other people. She worked hard and loved the kids like no other. When she left, a grey cloud formed over the school. The kids loved her. Everything possible should have been figured out so she would stay. Instead, they let her leave the heart of the school. It will never be the same without her. The BEST counselor ever! We loved you!

Office staff rude, the principal is totally inept, library leader yells at the kids when they go to get a book and the kids look sad. The school is dirty everywhere you look especially in the hallways. Teachers wear whatever they want and treat the kids like they are a huge bother. This is the first year I have noticed this seems no the best part is PE the coach likes the kids.
