This school has stayed the same since opening. This should state a lot.there is no change. For the students this means there should be change in staff and teachers just like re-electing anew president ever 4 years. change would be good and better the students. For the teachers and staff has not done a good job in the last 5 years for I have 5 grand=children who are there or all ready left. there way of teaching and suppose to set example is not acceptable to my standards. And there way is not working. and the children suffer , so change would be the best.
