  • I am dissapointed how the phone messages to the teachers and the person incharge of the 8th graders to report incidents do not return phone calls from parents. I specifically requested for Ms. Espanol to call me back, and I have not gotten a call back as of yet. This is unfortunately the closet school for my child to attend, otherwise I would have my child attend any other school.
