I dont think that some of the faculty is as committed to providing the proper education to our children. I have 2 children attending the school at this time and I am not pleased at all. Some of the teachers do not know how to interact with some of the students and parents. The Guidance Counselor's are never available except for Ms Nelson Genius. Who is a very caring and dedicated person.
