  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on April 06, 2010
  • Rating: 3 (3 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Student guidance for the most part doesn't take place. The student bullying
    is getting out of control in school and walking home from school.
    The kids will be kids excuse isn't acceptable any longer. The Medina schools need to get tough and not complacent. The dress code for girls, if there is one is out of control.

    The leadership and staff needs to take on a leadership role and not look the other way to these issues.
