For years this school was not great, then it started getting better. Now, this year, things are getting way worse. There is a whole lot of bullying going on and the principal and new principal do nothing. Why did they get a new assistant principal who does absolutely nothing!? The old one took care of things and was always busy. Goes to show how one person can make a difference.
