  • in follow up to my comments about admin. comm., this is unfortunate because many of the teachers have several years of teaching experience; in some cases 15 years or more. And, especially with these more experienced teachers, it is sad that they are not allowed more control over their classrooms.

  • I have to agree with this parent re: communication. Staff is so overwhelmed with district requirements (where even the teachers' board content is mandated by District) that parents are not even advised of awards ceremonies.

  • i can't find anything good to say about the admin. office. Seems the office personal, there need more training, in what their supose to be doing. Most of all in comunication.
