I find it interesting that the graduation rates have went down in the past 5 years from 99 % to 71 %. I wonder why that is? The student teacher ratio is higher than other schools, so you would think that would have a positive influence on the students thus creating more graduations. Is it the "New Tech" that`s a problem? Are children having a problem with the computerized system? Is it the use of standardize tests? I guess this isn`t the place to ask questions but it has my mind wondering.
