  • THIS IS A SMALL SCHOOL, YOU WOULD THINK THAT STUDENTS WOULD RECEIVE MORE ONE ON ONE BUT INSTEAD IT'S THE OPPOSITE. TEACHERS PRETTY MUCH DO AS THEY PLEASE. THE PRINCIPAL COULD CARE LESS, AS WELL AS THE SUPERINTENDENT. IF I WERE YOU I WOULD TAKE MY
    CHILD SOMEWHERE ELSE. I HEAR HD IS A GREAT SCHOOL. UNLESS THINGS CHANGE , AND YOU WANT THEM TO LEARN THE BASICS AND A LITTLE MORE TAKE THEM SOME WHERE ELSE.
