I found this school has a god gifted principal specially. But I found the grading system is different with different teacher. It is very important to have same grading reference. It will be very helpful for both the parents and their children if the grading system will get some improvement. For more clearly, i would like to say the concern staff to be so careful with grading. Not all the parents and children are same. Some persons are very sensitive with the grading system. It really need some improvement for the teachers about grading.
