  • 9th grade science is a farce - "science projects" = report on STD's.

    My kid was skipping school, and I was not even notified unless I had to pick her up! They should not BE a school, in my opinion.

    My child needed supported English when she was in Plum SD. When she came here, she excelled - their program was behind.

    The only thing that I found academically acceptable was their math.
