  • If you have a non caucasian child I would NOT send them to this school. My students have been bullied, racially intimidated, grabbed, pushed, threatened and kicked, most by other students but two incidents where a teacher physically grabbed the student. There was only two teachers who addressed the issue and stood up for them, the principal and offending teachers, never addressed the issue even after phone calls and meetings. The incidents were called "non issues" because the principal didn't see them happen, even though several witnesses came gave the same account.
    With all the bullying in headlines across America, you would think this school would take it seriously, they DO NOT!!!
