Steve, 9 years later there is still a lot of bullying and the principals, counselors, and teachers don't care. My daughter came home with an anti- bullying ambassador award today. This piece of paper means nothing to my daughter, she says she wants something done about the bullying going on at this school. BOI must be a teacher or have some kind of affiliation to this school.
That school is great and amazing STEVE
A LOT OF TEACHERS ARE VERY ABUSIVE TO CHILDREN. SOME HAVE PREJUDICE TENDENCIES. THERE ARE JUST A FEW GOOD TEACHERS. THE NEW PRINCIPAL DOES NOT CARE. THERE ARE A LOT OF BULLIES IN THIS SCHOOL. THESE BAD TEACHERS EXPECT PARENTS TO TEACH THE CHILDREN. THE FACILITIES ARE NICE.
Review Railway Elementary School. Reviews should be a few sentences in length. Please include any comments on:
- Quality of academic programs, teachers, and facilities
- Availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities
