My son loved this school. The teachers really cared about the students. He never had any trouble with other students or staff.

I heard that this school has bullying issues from past student's parents. I am sad to say it's true this year for my child. It doesn't seem that the staff really takes it seriously or has truly tried to assist in stopping it. Always an excuse for why it's not technically bullying. If a child comes home upset and hurting then it's an issue.
