When I was at this school, the teachers were very hostile to my accommodations and I got overly harsh consequences for my actions.
If your child has special needs and need accomodations will not be assesed properly and accomdated to suit his disability. I also have found them to be discrimination against race. This is my personal and opinion and from personal experiences with the staff.
