  • This school is horrible, my son was passed through kindergarten and first grade and could not read, I asked from home to be tested and held back and they said he would catch up the following year... We moved schools both started out very behind, but the new school did get them caught up and put them on a 501 and IEP... Look at the nearby charter schools if you want quality teachers for your children!

  • They only teach to the tests not what kids need to know for real life. Tutoring is only if they don't pass the test. They have to scramble to find how to teach a subject in the internet because they don't have the materials. Education sucks for students if they only have to learn the tests to pass. So really what is the point of education now a days. I feel sorry for all the kids and for the future of this country. Tests and Students should not rule the schools. Get some love and knowledge seminars.
