In 2017 Seminole Middle School had a very bad bullying problem. A friend of mine, that is familiar with the school board and their policies, said that they had an idea. They would take some of the really bad kids from the bad areas and send them to better schools in better areas like Seminole.
They were thinking that the new environment would somehow change the children’s behavior. Well it did not work. It got to the point where the principal had to be reprimanded for not dealing effectively with the bad and violent behavior of some of the kids brought to Seminole Middle School.
I have a 13-year-old son, Jackson; Last year was his first year in Middle school, going from Bauder Elementry to Seminole Middle School.My son said that there were fights almost every day and that some of the kids were even trying to fight the teachers.Jackson never got bullied and no one tried to pick on him or fight him.
