This school is more than test scores, special need students is the total population. The school serves the under served and they are AWESOME!!! at what they do. As stated above the children most challenged receive the least amount of funds. The data reflected gives raw numbers because that is what data does. Data does not speak to heart and spirit of the school, that is what I am for, a parent who cares to share.
