School Reviews

1   1/20/2020
This school needs a total academic overhaul and more diversity. The TA's and teachers need to be kept in one class year after year to build relationships with the students and maintain high academic standards. The constant shifting of classroom personnel is a large problem because it prevents consistency and positive growth.
