If your child doesn't have any behavioral issues, catches on easily to lessons, and doesn't need much help, then you'll do great here. I've had teachers try to diagnose my child with learning disabilities and suggest medication. The kicker is if the teacher doesn't want to offer additional help for a struggling student, they won't. There is no after-school program or anything during the school day that offers extra help unless that teacher feels like it. Extracurricular activities are extremely limited. For instance, the students have art one day a week. Art elective, again, one day a week. I cannot imagine why some students can become so bored.
