I feel that in 2019, it has improved very much. The teachers really seem to care now but they don''t really seem to care about clothing. Either that or they dress code girls that are following the rule. The teachers really try to help improve our understanding of everything. Some teachers are nicer than others but teachers really have tried to help us now. There are many pros now rather than cons.

1) Lack of tools to learn i.e.; textbooks, pencils, even teachers,etc. 2) SECOND TO LAST IN THE U.S. FOR EDUCATION 3) Verbal abusement everyday by teachers go unreported but will be seen 4) Principal Flaherety is not fit for her job. She doesn't care about how the children need to learn. She has only been in this position for only 1 year 1/2 and she has sent more than 1/2 the school to APEP. NOT A GOOD SCHOOL!! DO NOT ENROLL HERE!!!

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.
