As for the fights and bullying, other schools are no better. I see no difference at Talley than I would at Bayard, Shue, Kirk, Springer, or P.S. Other parents I know have children in these schools and it is the same thing. This is middle school and there are lots of social changes. If a student or parent feels unsafe they need to address it with the school as soon as it occurs.
