The teachers has select few that they will help and those kids are kids that come from families with money. The teachers doesn't want to help children that ask and don't understand the work specially if you are in the lower income group. And when it comes to bullying I as a parent went to teachers and principals about issues my Daugther was having with other students and nothing is ever don't about it. The classrooms are overly full. The teachers hearts aren't in teaching they could careless how the child is doing. Its really sad to see that. Even some teachers make comments that a child isn't gonna make something of themselves and better get use to asking do you want fries with that. No child should hear that from a teacher period..

It has always been a good school until this past year when the principal decided to convert to a charter school. Now the students are all behind and the parents are mad.
