Severe disciplinary problems, poor leadership, and apathetic parents. Not a safe school for teachers and students who truly want to learn. Students are constantly fighting in classrooms, vandalizing school property, and threatening teachers. I should know because I was a former teacher at that school and have personally witnessed the horrors of what I described earlier. Also did not receive the kind of support that I need from the principal and parents. It was a mess when I left that school, and from what I have heard recently from former colleagues, the issues that have been plaguing that school have become worse. I do not have children of my own, but if I did I would not enroll them at that school. My advice to parents and future teachers is to avoid that school like the plague, or be very sorry.
