  • This school needs to be looked at closely as well as the teachers. My son receives good grades on his report cards yet can't read at his grade level. He tells me all the time that his teacher is always on the computer or cell phone. She gives them paper work to do in class. When did that become a way to teach? i wish I had the money to send him to a better school and a better teacher.
