Large class sizes, frequent administrative turnover, and low teacher morale plague this fundamental school, making it difficult for parents to be involved and students to be successful. Due to budget cuts, extracurricular clubs and activities and support of ABC program have all but disappeared. Quality of teaching and academic programs has been greatly reduced over the last three years.
