  • THE SCHOOL IS GREAT, ESPECIALLY THE VPA PROGRAMS...THE SCHOOLS ANNEX AND GUIDANCE OFFICE COULD USE A LITTLE MORE HELP. I CALLED THE SCHOOL 13 TIMES TO SPEAK WITH A TEACHER OR PRINCIPLE OR SOMEONE ABOUT MY STUDENTS GRADES, ATTENTANCE, AND OTHER VERY RELEVEANT MATTERS WHICH NO ONE HAS CALLED ME BACK THE WHOLE SCHOOL YEAR. AND YES, I DID GO TO THE SCHOOL VERY UPSET!
