School Reviews

1   1/20/2020
This school allows students to consistently be bullied with no intervention. Children are just told to use the debug system, yet when it doesn't work they fail to address the issue. They continue to allow children to be behind and struggle with no assistance or intervention or actively search for a way to help these children. When you ask for a conference, they ignore you or tell you that it isn't needed at this time, once you get a conference of your child is too far behind for the conference to even matter.
