  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on September 19, 2007
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • This school has an attitude that their teachers know more about your child then you do. They are quick to judge your child on one or two bad acts and enjoy calling you in for meetings not to resolve problems but to tell you every time your child gave a funny look. You can spend up to three hours in these meeting while the teachers complain about your son or daughter this is what they did to me. Just for them to turn around 3 weeks later and send home a progress report with all A+'s on it. When I e-mailed my child's home room teacher she replied that the teacher in the school worked very hard and it paid off. Meanwhile I have spent 2-3 hours a night making sure my child knew all of that he reviewed in class. They also think that they can send you e-mail's telling you to take your child out of extra curricular activities because the "Team" thinks it is a distraction. A distraction? With all A+'s what on earth is that about!
