    i think B.A.E.S it's a great school because we have a stronge pricipal and stronge teacher's that work very hard helps our school and giving student more education.But we need someone very stronge to work with the parent's by teaching them how to be involve everday and there child's education we dont need someone spoiling the parent's.B.A.E.S parent's are came from other envoriment.if you dont teach them they wont know how to be volunteer in there child school and to be part in the school PTA.
