I would like to see the administration changed, they do not look out for the student's safety during school hours. Side doors are left unalarmed allowing anyone to come in and out as they please. Although, the academics is great the safety and administration needs to be taken seriously.
District 28 Public Schools are very effective and continue to be a neat way for all students to earn a strong education! Nobody will be left out, and everyone will always be considered.
