Bullying is something that is absolutely unacceptable specially from a school that has received so many accolades. Really disappointed with the recent news that has emerged about the La Rosey institute. Such kind of negative behavior should be highly condemned.

Failing to protect the rights of a child by not responding to complaints against bullying on campus is not so cool. It failed to ensure basic things like student’s safety. Definitely not a place that I will recommend.
