My son's teacher has been communicated well. So does the principal office and school district. However school should have focused more on a foundation of education and inspire students to expand the vision of their learning. School should consider STEM Labs, and such.
This school is a poster child for the need for a voucher system. The school is extremely large and most of the administration (especially principal Patricia Smith) and most teachers don't give a hoot about the children or their education. One of my daughter's teachers informed her class that she didn't care how they did on the FCAT because she was still going to get her paycheck. I think this attitude is very prevalent on this campus. When my son started there 9 years ago, the community was so much kinder and parents interested. Very sad.
