  • This school is just god awful! Kid goig around fracturing peoples ribs and hands and getting away with it. The teachers dont care about the kids actully learning the lesson. As long as they get paid. Little girls and boys trade and doning pot and not even getting suspened for it. You that 3 kids get arrested every day over there. And just guess how many over at the high school, just guess! NONE! This school is just horrible!
