Our oldest was bullied for 5 years by the same kid, we reported it many times, she finally suffered a broken arm at his hands, nothing done about it. Our youngest was severely injured on the playground, broken pubic bone, no call from the school at all. Any complaint you have will fall on deaf ears. AVOID THIS HORRIBLE PLACE!!!
