    This school is not an educational institution for children to learn nurture and further their educational goals. This school lacks supervision of the children in their care. Extreme violence and daily bullying occurs in this bldg in the presence of the staff. The schools has cameras and the students are aware of the locations of the cameras to avoid detection to commit acts of violence on other students. This school needs a complete overhaul of its current standards practices and policies dealing with the Special Ed. population. (e.i) The staff needs training on issues pertaining to bullying and proceed going forward with implementing a plan to discontinue the wide spread of bullying and violence in this school building. Schools buildings are for educating students. Students should feel safe and secure upon entering and exiting. Students should not feel fearful and anxious as to whether they will get bullied each day upon entering and exiting this bldg. Parents totally avoid this school it will be the best decision one makes for their child.
