Not all teachers are bad. Some don't care at all. AP's don't return emails or concern. 6th grade is hard no matter what school but don't expect much support from the staff. My son is not the easiest to teach due to his attention deficit issues, he is not perfect but he is WAY smarter and well behaved than they have him pegged. I wish my son was somewhere else!
