Too many kids, teachers/admin can't keep track of. Students "slip through the cracks". Can't get anyone on telephone or to return any messages. Parents & students are pretty much on their own. If you want to talk to anyone there, you have to go to the school itself. Not bad if you live in area, but for people that are an hour away and have to work, it is impossible. The school doesn't communicate well with parents. My student complains that bathrooms are always dirty and no doors on stalls. School "can't afford" to spend money on things like new books or desks, but can spend away when it comes to football (and only football) even though they haven't won a single game in years. Can't speak on other sports other than they only spend money on football program. I'm not against football, but I think academics should come first, then sports programs . . . and all sports programs should be treated equally.
