    this is a very bad school because kids flood toilets break glass on stair cases they fight to much and teachers still take those bad children on trips and all the principal is doing is suspending children witch is not helping at all and parents are not stepping in that is why i moved my child from that dreadful school i would never recommend this school to any one ever all the parents is worried about is their children fights and trouble
