  • I can also say I had faith in because I went there when I was younger has been a challenge for mychildren with no help. Teachers only care of themselves you have very few who are in it for the kids. The action of the childrens, the words and they have coming from the mouth is horror I was shocked. NO RESPECT Children learn at different angles and I have a above, middle an low learners. I was told that my low learner should have been tested Years ago for a learning issue now I may have to wait anoter 2 years it is a joke. I am so sick of buying supplies for teachers an can't afford to by for my children. Children learn by leaders and we have so few this is why they can't tend to all kids. Assistant Principal is amazing she does everything she can in her power to make sure you are taken care of but one person can not do it alone. Wish I could go to another school but again I can't of the issues below. Sadly my children are left behind. Bus rides are a joke they never do what the job is and it a fight to get then to come get my kids. 3 months into the year I can get them to come but it is so aggervating.
