    My personal experience of this school is...They care more about the money they get from the state than the childrens happiness and well being. There is alot of bullin in gray by not only how parents are raising thier kids these days but also poor supervision in school allowing this. In result of that my child did not want to go anymore. When i brought this concern to them their reaction was very uncareing as a matter of fact i felt attacked by them(school n parents)just because i was sticking up for my child who was contiously being picked on and affecting school work. Bottom line kids are mean so you can't raise yours to be nice they'll only get hurt literally. The adults not only allow this but laugh about it and think its no big deal saying(kids will be kids)is all i hear not true kids are who we are and what we teach them.
