  • hi i am a parent at may school i don't understand about how the other parents can complain about the school when none of the parents will take any time out to come up to the school and help out i think the school has improve alot the staff is a lot better,the only time u see most of the parents is when they want to fight or curse out one of the staff my hat goes off to the staff because they have really brought may into the new millineum and they are giving our kids alot of chances to do great things with there lives the parents need to teach the kids to take advantage of there chances.
