    Lack of Discipline - Of course with the lack of procedures one might imagine that discipline problems are not monitored and dealt with appropriately. You are correct. The students fight. They curse as if their life depended upon it and they could care less for they have come to understand that there are no consequences for their actions.

    I was A student and this school is not that great.. my teacher asks me to help her teach the class because I was advanced and would get mad when I do a better job than her. Maybe they will hire better teachers when they rebuild it..I'm so glad i'm out of there and in high school now in the county.. Oh and the prepack food suck too...
