    I agree with the parent that said this is the worst school. .my son has also been bullied by the staff and teachers more then the students. I feel the teacher talk down to these kids thinking because 85% of kids at school is mexican decent and because the students are most likely not to tell their parents in fear of getting parents in trouble the staff and teacher bully these kids. My next step is B.O.E ....

    Kepner is a terrible school! I would give them negative stars if I could. My son attended Kepner and it was the worst experience of his life he was bullied to no end by his classmates. The school did the very least to help and offered no support what so ever. Mr. Linkous is trying but not hard enough! The way the staff speak to these students is terrible and at this point I am not sure who is worse the school or the bully kids that go to this school!
