Another middle school needed

Here is what I think. My granddaughter went to McLaughlin Middle School for two years. She was unhappy there most of the time. One day when I picked her up from school as soon as she got in the car she said the next three days will be great. I asked her why and she said because John (not real name) was suspended for three days so he won’t be there to disrupt the class. There were many times when she would describe different things that would make her unhappy. I just wrote one so you could get an idea of what bothered her. She was bullied enough by one girl that we had to meet with the principal. It is awful that a student that wants to learn has to put up of with stuff like that. As soon as her parents could they enrolled her at Bok for her last year of middle school which was the first year for Bok. She thrived at Bok and I don’t believe she had one unhappy day there. The things they looked for at Bok was decent grades, the discipline record and the attitude of the student. I don’t care where they put a new charter school for a middle school in Lake Wales but I do believe that another middle school like Bok is need in this community. My granddaughter is now in college.
