  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on June 09, 2009
  • Rating: 3 (3 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school is great with communicating with the parents via telephone and email and they have lots of activities for students to get involved in. However, there are a few teachers that need improvement. My daughter has always been an Honors student until she took Pre-Calculus. The teacher did not know how to teach the class. My daughter passed with a D. Many of the students do not like this teacher for that reason. It's not just my daughter. Overall, I feel that the school is a good school. The district should not only make sure teaching applicants have college degrees in secondary education, but that they KNOW HOW to teach as well.
