  • Ive seen other school programs in the country ,mainly FL schools and I couldnt believe the lack of education,and care on behalf of the staff,and students.Teachers make grossly above average income and the demonstrate very poor leadership and mentorship towards students.I graduated1994 from your shool system with a level of education of most collage programs currently in Duval Co. Fl.Im grateful for that.15 years after graduation and still well ahead of the curve.Thanks to Mcdonald County school system!!!!
