    AS a parent and also an employee of the city of New Bedford my experience with dealing with the support staff really stinks. Even when it comes to the safety of our children they do not address these issues properly. Pass the buck. Fortunate for these students if it wasn't for Officer Perry these children wouldn't stand a chance. Politics Politics Politics. Wake up New Bedford hire competent staff. These children (all children) are our future.

    My daughter goes to this school and it's amazing. I think that it should be higher than 2 out of 10. That's ridiculous. It's a brand new school. There are so many extracurricular activities. Thank you for you time.

    I feel that this school is unsafe for the children. Also a very dirty school.
