  • sayre school is not what it could be. the principal is a prejudice. he talks to his staff like dirt. he also hides a lot of bad things that the students do so downtown would think that sayr high school doesn't have any problems. he is always taking credit for something, the man really doesn't care about the students education. the students themselves will tell you. I can recall one incident that two students were caught on tape having sex in the classroom and all they got was a suspension.
