  • Although the school itself seems to be fine. It does not have a strong science and math curriculum. I find no difference between other public schools and challenger. In addition the principal cares more about her political career then she does about the children. (...) Although most of the teachers are excellent there are several who do not belong in a teaching position at all and have moved between schools several times in the past year. Tenure should not guarantee them a position.
