The School is really Great. Great teachers. The Level of teaching instruction and direction should match the High School norms not to teach at college Level. Books are Heavy killing the kids every day is nasty. School should find a way to avoid the BIG JUNK on their back every day. If School Management try to take care of these things better for your school and sensitive kids.
