It has gotten better as the people filter out. Will be especially great for 8th graders coming in for 2017-2018 year.

My student has done well at Giunta for the past 2 years attending. She is starting 8th grade this year and I expect the same. However, just by reading the review above, it gives a perfect example as to the children/teenagers she attends school with. My only complaint is it seems that the teachers deal with so many "problem kids" that the kids who excel seem to be pushed to the aside.
