After one year, my child is transferring. The academic programs are mediocre at best. Some of the teachers lack professionalism and are not committed to the students academic progress. The environment was challenging as well. Many students were rowdy and profanity and threats are an everyday occurrence. My child was extremely uncomfortable with most of the students and I as well. While I did voice my concerns over and over again, my family determined that it was best to move and enroll my child in another school that would be better suited. My child's new school has better academic scores and a great reputation.
