Student to teacher ratio is inaccurate. Classrooms are over crowded and teachers aren't able to teach efficiently. Parents have to provide all of the supplies and re-teach their kids at home because the teacher is unable to assist them while they're in school. The time frame for school lunch is non existent because they spend the majority of lunch waiting on line. Leaving your child hungry and unable to concentrate. They emphasize the importance of being on time to class and have them running from floor to floor in order to get to their next period. They have a ridiculous grading method now where they are setting these children up for failure. If you do not believe this just ask any of the parents you come across. They will be more than happy to tell you the truth.

Being a parent is never easy, but some children are more challenging than others. If you're concerned that your child's behavioral issues might be more than just temporary, consider whether an alternative school might be the next move.
All students deserve to have an equal chance at academic success but not every student learns in the same way. Alternative schools provide students with unique challenges or abilities an opportunity to succeed in a different educational setting.
