I am very unhappy with this school. Their is very poor school-parent communication; the teachers have no control in the classrooms; the schedules are a mess; even the sports teams'' coaches are ridiculously bias. My son is very smart & in algebra for 8th grade but they also gave him regular math; so everything he learns in algebra, he learns 2 months later in regular math. It is the most asinine setup. He consistently comes home & tells us how terrible the kids in his class behave. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone....you're best to move to a different district.
