School Reviews

2  5/21/2015
It is extremely difficult to get information concerning my son's grades etc. total lack of communication from the school as a whole about class events and dates including when senior pictures are due, graduation date, and my son's specific curriculum. He needs an IEP, but don't have one. The school website never is available when I try to access it and when it does come up, it tells me the password/ user name is not correct when I attempt to check his grades online. When I ask for the correct access information I am given the same information even though it is wrong. Of course if I call the person I need to speak to is not available so I have to leave a voicemail and they don't call back.
