The new principal is awesome! He really loves the kids. He made a lot of great changes and supports everyone. We got off the dangerous list and the school is a great place to learn.

I agree .. The new principal is crazy....

Well...... The principal is not new. He is the best thing that ever happened to that school. You are just mad because he doesn't let you get away with crap that you did before he got there. He is making it safe and all of the kids just need to stop breaking rules and get an education. That is what he is about. You should try it.
