Excellent teachers!

The youngest of my 4 children just graduated from this school - Years ago it was one of the top schools in the district, now it is barely in the middle. Some great teachers, most average and far too many are just sitting waiting for retirement. School and teachers need a major shakeup, with effective policies and new curriculum but current weak leadership unlikely to be able to make it happen
