Terrible; The children are disrespectful and bullying has become an epidemic. Social media is very influential and children are having personal items stolen. This isn't the school for achievement. There are fights just about every day. The level of ignorance has consumed the building. This goes for some Staff as well as the children. I'm ashamed that I chose this school for my child. It has been nothing other than a bad decision.
