This school suffered from overcrowding last year. This meant that teachers were overwhelmed and did not have time to actually answer questions or explain material except afterschool. Also there was the transition to iPad. Most work was assigned and collected exclusively by electronic means which was impeded by software problems. It was very difficult to reach guidance counselors and IT contact because of huge number of students.
