Students like me have no say in anything at school, 3 people decide the fate for over 800 students. Practically no extracurricular activities. Teachers and other figures of power need to listen to and not ignore students. Content above average, but did most work before.

Location is nice and tucked away, teachers so far so good; really works with my son on his speech and anything else he falls behind in. He is just starting out in K, I am very unhappy with the buses at the beginning of the year, I can understand that it well take a little while to get up and running. We were waiting for a month for the bus to be assigned even though we watched it pass a lot. The first day he was able to get on a bus he was put on the wrong one, we repeatedly called the school with either no answer or told just to wait he was on his bus. By 5:15pm I was on my way to the school and as I was pulling in got the call that he had been on a wrong bus, crying and upset child always equals a unhappy parent. Later found out my son was being bullied and nothing being done, he is a small child to begin with; he Has speech delay so he crys when he can't understand then would be yelled at an then more crying. After being in school for a long time a few days before winter break was told they didn't have his ss card or shot record which I remember watching them make copies and putting into his folder were now missing! Months into the school year and you just now notice?! Sent in we had on file but placed note that durning a move of sorts we had misplaced records and that if it was the wrong one to call and I would have a new one given. Wht happened to his ss card? They can not comment on what could have happened, that is very important information! The bus , and records being misplaced, bullying kids that can not understand? That is what kind of school this is. I know some people love this school and my parents loved it for my little brother, but so far I am outraged and very disappointed.
