    If I could give a zero I would I've never seen a school that made so many poor decisions. The bar is not set high at MB and consistency is nonexistent in both academics and disciplinary actions. One student may be suspended for a said offense while another may be asked to do push ups for the same! Really I've had enough with this joke of a school my son will not attend next year!
