    This school is very disorganized school teachers and other staff members don't have any control in the classrooms cafeteria or buses. Your kids are not safe in this school. Teachers and staff members curse in front of of the students a lot of bad influences at this school. I remember when I was growing up teachers wouldn't dare curse in front of there students. Transfers! God forbid you wanna transfer your kids out of this school im sure these rules apply in every school any how. I wish you the best with that transfer all I can say is start making funeral arrangements the bulling issues at this school is crazy because of policies and regulations the bully gets to intimidated and beat up on other kids with out any actions being taken oh yea i forgot "suspension". This doesn't help at all these kids return and do it all over again
