    I went to school hear for two and a half years. Things started to slowly get better but there is still room for improvement. Many of the children are very disrespectful and do not listen to an authority figure.

    Coaches don;t have confidence in their players. Teacher's aren't teaching. They just print off worksheets all the time, and call that teaching. Principle doesn't do her job well.
