School Reviews

I am appalled by the lack of concern and complete disregard of bullying in this school. My brother attends this school and has been abused by a group of children for over two years. My brother has sought help from his teachers. The bullying only worsened. My mother has spoken with the guidance counselor every year in an attempt to solve the problem to no avail. It has been two and a half years of daily physical and verbal abuse with no intervention by the school staff! This school does NOT provide a safe learning environment!
