  • Within the first few months of school my son was attacked by a child and choked. The school did nothing to the child to enforce discipline even after I filed a police report. My SPED child was told to write what happened on small paper, when his disabilities prevented him from doing so.
    When I attended this school I was attacked by a gang and it continued through high school because nothing was done about it.
