There is a huge bullying issue at this school! They are in denial! It's so bad that the students record videos of fights and then post it on social media to share and brag about it. The school does nothing. The school has no systems in place on the buses nor the school to protect the kids. There is a lack of supervision in the hallways. I hope that one day this school fixes this issue before someone truly gets hurt.
