This school needs to get a handle on how they address bullying. My son was backed into a corner by another student while a teacher watched to see if they "could work it out on their own". After my son repeatedly asked the kid to stop and move and he didn't my son pushed him so he could get away from him and that's when the teacher decided it would be a good time to intervene. My son got suspended and the other kid got off with a warning. More recently my son has come home upset daily because he is being pushed and called names. He has told the teachers and office about it and nothing has been done. They don't let the kids run at recess, talk at lunch or in the bus line, and then suggest your child has ADHD when they can't sit still in class or talk in class. I guess they don't realize that parents talk to each other. Something has got to change.

I rated based on the experience that I am about to explain and not on the entire school experience. Let me first say that my child's teacher is exceptional, the food provided for lunch, its exceptional-I enjoy eating there on my lunch break. The lunch room workers are exceptional, kind and enjoyable...but, recently I was contacted about my child by the principal. She stated that my child hit another student and a referral was being completed. She advised me that she spoke with students whom witnessed it, my child was rude, to boot, when asked about the issue and would spank him if I were unable to attend immediately to this problem. I told her no, that this does not sound anything like my child and I would see to it when at home. I read the referral, it called him the perpetrator and the other, my kids close friend, the 'victim'. After speaking with my child I was able to ascertain that there was not only no hitting but no verbal altercation that preceded it. My child had no idea why the principal was speaking to him that day, or why a referral was even written. I contacted the principal the following day to let her know what I had discovered and she stated that upon 'further investigation, it was found that my child had never actually hit the student'-sorry, the 'victim', and she was keeping the referral. Her reasoning was because my child had, in excitement during a game, shook his friend by his shoulders. I doubt that, had I not contacted the principal that day, she would not have called me to let me know of her most recent findings. I also believe that, without me notifying his teacher of the discrepancy, she would not have been advised of it either. To this day, there are parents out there that believe my child hit their child.

My son has been bullied by students and teachers at this school. Last incident his teacher called him a coward and immature in front of the class. She finds anyway to knock his self-esteem down while I'm busy trying to build him up. Other parents have informed me that she also calls the students fools and stupid. We need better educators in our school system. My kid hates school at this point and something has to be done!! #Stopbullying in ALL SCHOOL SYSTEM!!

The principle at this school is a complete bully! There are good teachers at this school but there are some very HORRIBLE teachers as well. My daughter hates her teacher, and I don't blame her. Wanted her to be moved to a new class but the bully principle wouldn't allow it. She uses intimidation to try and shut the parents up. Principle is the worst thing ever! I won't be sending my daughter here anymore.

This is our second year at this school and I am not pleased at all by it. My child has been struggling and now at over halfway through the school year the school still fails to help my child. I do everything I possibly can to teach my child everything at home. However I am sending my child to school for 7 hours 5 days a week and the teacher fails to actually teach anything. This new principle they have is horrible and does not care about all the students equally. On top of my child having a teacher who doesn't know how to teach, the teacher is very knit-picky and 'flags'/deducts points from there conduct scores for every little thing she possibly can. Its very sad that my child got placed in a class with a teacher who only knows how to teach by a manual telling her what to do and say. She is not fun and has no compassion for children. I have asked and demanded several times for my child to be placed with a new teacher, however like I expected the principle doesn't care enough to see that my child would be better off with a BETTER teacher.
