The marine science teacher is rude and does not keep us parents up to date on the field trips.

Our experience is mixed. Yet, the curriculum is great and our child is happy and learning, but with the prospect of possibly facing yet another new teacher next year. We do have our concerns. In addition, one of the other parents told me he looked up info on the instructional staff and only a couple of the teachers are actually qualified or experienced to teach at a public school. Not sure how this information compares to other schools in the area. But, this may be a difference between private and public schoolsThis school has had such a high staff turn over the past couple of years. Both support and instructional. This year they tried a new admin and still they have gone thru their complete office staff and from what several other parents are finding out, they are losing almost half of their classroom teachers. Not sure what fix is needed, but not certain our daughter is going back next year. (Have already applied to another local charter school, we feel a good school and their students need consistency)
