    This school is... is just terrible. The children are out of control. The teachers don't do too much about it. Racism fights and bullying happens daily. Some teachers are okay but only some. Some kids make out in the library. Lots of kids look up things shouldn't on the computer they shouldn't be. The teachers always have a favorite who they spoil beyond belief and ignore the other students. Unless your child has no flaws whatsoever then bullying is inevitable.
