I rate the school this way because I see things that is not being addressed appropiately. My son has been bullied since the beginning of the year and it is still going on. Went to the school when it first began and explained that it needed to stop. This is the reason a child that have never been in trouble start to get in trouble. My son was a "A B" student and now he don't want to go to school. I see the teachers call him down when he take up for himself but the bully get a pat on the back. What make it so bad the boy that pick on him is overweight also. I explain to my son that it will be hard but he has to overlook the stupid remarks and let him see it don't bother him. But you know he is a child and it is not easy for a child to do that. I worry about him everyday he go to school. It has become a terrible place when you have to worry about your child when he go to school. What can I do? It is only so much a parent can do the administration has to take over if it stop and I don't see this school doing that. I hate this school now it was great when it was a high school and the administration was good. Please let me know what else I can do?
