  • This school and it's principal has major flaws such as:the principal does not take proper measures for misbehaved children,instead he punishes all student's which then makes the well behaved children think that no matter how well behaved or how well their doing in school that their getting the bad end of the stick regardless which from that point makes a lot of those children turn towards the ill road.Another issue that is facing our children is that a lot of the teachers dont put forth the neccessary efforts to go the extra mile with the children.This school has a long way to go as far as test scores,and just obtaining the basic know how of certain subjects. The violence and abuse from teachers to students,and from student to student is outrageous.sOME OF THE TEACHERS VERBALLY ABUSE THE CHILDREN by calling them stupid, which then lowers their self-esteem a lot more than it already is.We as a society need to put forth more effort toward the education of our children, and their safety. I feel that a lot of issues can be rectified with a better principal and more dedicated teachers and parents to the educatin of our future.
