I regret ever enrolling my daughter in this school! The communication is beyond dissatisfaction. I live 3hours away. Calling during business hours and Not being able to speak to any staff member is unacceptable. After my daughter and myself requested tutoring I was told by the principal tutoring would be available to her twice a week. Over a two month timeframe she only received it once. Then a staff member decided to take it upon herself to arch my daughter who is 12 eyebrows. The school system is behind to the point I haven't seen any graded assignments. I was even told from my daughter and other students they were all given 75 on there interim report because they didn't have enough test scores. There is no reason at all for a grade to be falsified. I would never recommend this school to any involved parent! For any parent who is having a rough time with your son or daughter. Continue to pray, dont give up, remember society has change to the point where kids are exposed to to make adult decisions. Talk with your child while being open and honest. Sending my daughter to this school was a lesson taught. It made me see that just because standards are met doesn't mean they can't be exceeded. I want nothing but the best for any child not just mine Some people do a job because its what they get paid to do. Anytime anyone has a chance to make a difference in anyone especially a child. Should take full advantage of the opportunity to do so. That impression could be a forever lasting life changing impression.
