Not a very good school in my opinion. The way they allow parents and fans to act to towards young athletes in ridiculous. It is not stop bullying to the opposing children. I mean who goes to a child's sporting event to make fun of children? Their coaches are totally aware of this situation. They do nothing they let them go. I would be very concerned about my child if I had one in this school. If they are willing to except very poor behavior from a group of adults bullying 11 years olds is pathetic. They should be ashamed of themselves. But from the response I got back from their athletic director - he felt the ref should have given our coaches a technical foul for stepping on he courts.. He also said one of our fans shouted out about a call okay well who hires the refs? Perhaps you should be more concerned about the impression you, your coaches, and your fans have on children. So please think twice about sending your child to this place; use your judgement. Don't ever let anyone talk down to or tease your child for just being an 11 year old having fun! I guess this has been going on and on forever. So apparently they like their low class reputation. But that's on them. I do urge them to end the bullying. It's no joke. So keep brushing it under the rug , see if that won't land you in trouble one way or another. Think about the children of these people. Your teaching your kids to be little disrespectful brats! Just like you. Just my thought! If you are ever thinking about sending your child to school here, so me a favor and go to a sporting event, and decide if you can agree with those values and actions they are teaching the young children.
