School Reviews

2  
While one of my children had 3 decent teachers, one of my other children had only extremely poor teachers. Overall I think this school is primarily teaching to the lowest common denominator. If you have an average child, they will receive no resources. Overall I believe it is a function of the administration, if they were competent and capable, they would not have any (or as many) poor teachers. However, the administration is significantly lacking and needs help. If I had to come up with one word to describe the administration, it would be "bullies". Where do you think the kids learn it from?
