.

I attended this school as a child, and have suffered severe emotional trauma as a direct result of the lack of security, and "didn't see it happen" attitude the staff held. I was abused by other students during the four years I attended, many times under the "watchful" eye of the teachers and staff members. I was injured once when a student pulled a chair out from under me, the teacher laughed and told me I deserved it. I was pushed into the gravel and held down in direct view of the staff member who was "supervising" the playground. A friend of mine was "accidentally" STABBED in the head with a pencil by a teacher who had been yelling at her for doing something wrong. Another friend was drinking from the water fountain, the teacher counted to 5 seconds (the time limit for drinking) and told her she was done, when she didn't stop (she was very thirsty) The teacher grabbed the back of her hooded sweatshirt, and yanked up on it, choking her and ripping the seam of her sweater. The teachers at this school were always conveniently looking the other way while students would terrorize me as I tried to read aloud or study. Many times I was verbally reprimanded for retaliating, while the aggressors received no punishment or reprimand.

This school does not value originality or creativity. I was constantly told to "get back to reality" when I would talk about my plans for things or the things I enjoyed doing, even what I wanted to be when I grew up. My second grade teacher attempted to force me to write with my right hand instead of the left. She told me that there was no such thing as being left handed, that it was the product of my parent's misguidance, and had to be corrected,. After a week of seeing no result from her corrections, she gave up...telling me that I was hopeless, and my penmanship would always be sub par. On two occasions I was taken aside after class by my teacher and told that I should try to fit in more, and stop being so "weird" so that the other kids would stop picking on me. They tried to stifle my personality in order to curb the abuse, rather than punishing the bullies. My fifth grade teacher even told my mother that I didn't fit in because I was weird. He enjoyed making fun of me in front of the class, sometimes making fun of the way I was dressed.

One teacher in the school would often encourage the class in a group mocking of students when they gave a wrong answer, or said something she thought stupid, she would have the entire class turn and point at the student and say "duh!" This teacher once pronounced a word wrong, and I bravely raised my hand and told her how the word was pronounced, as it was a word I was familiar with. I was sent out of the room, then she came out into the "pod" to yell at me for embarrassing her in front of the class.

I spent an entire four years here feeling as if I were the most hated student at the school, though I never broke any rules without being provoked. By the time I reached fifth grade, I sat alone every day at lunch and during recess. I dreaded going to school, and actually had anxiety attacks on the bus as I arrived there. I lived in constant fear of pain and degradation, which was only relieved the summer after my last year here, because I knew I'd never have to return.

I know that the school has seen teachers come and go since my time there, and it may be better now, but I would never take that chance. If I were still living in that school district, I would rather home school my child than take chances with PHS.
