  • This is a decent school if you know what is out there. Many of the parents care about their children and support the teachers most of the time. However, as a volunteer in the building I have seen so much. Many of the parents assume that once the child enters the building they belong to them until graduation. They do not come to parent/teacher conferences. In fact they blame teachers when their children's homework is not done.Even though they were at home with the children.The parents have been used to and are allowed to always place blame on the school. But there are so few of the great parents "like me" who still sits with my child at night and works with them daily. I do have the time some do not. But don't blame the teachers if parents are not doing their part. They really are not.
