Yes i would reccomend this school to other parents. just one thing some people don't have tranportant to get to the school so i feel they need to give parents the code for parent portal over the phone so they would have the information before there child falls behind because they forgot there homework at school and if they go back to the classroom they will miss the bus and that will be another problem because the parent don't have tranportant to pick them up Thank you in advance maybe that some thing to look into.
