School Reviews

2   6/1/2020
I have one child in middle school and one in high school. What I have noticed is the teachers do not care and do not teach them what they need to know. They go to the next grade not having the skill needed to learn new content, especially in Math and Reading Comprehension. It seems like most of the students are behind where they should be. I have noticed that the overall ranking of this school has drastically gone downhill and all the good teachers have left the school because of the way things are done at this school. Their sports and music department is minimal and they do not have very many electives to choose from. There are only 4 or 5 electives to choose from, none of which help in the real world like home economics or something of that nature. Overall, the students do not feel like the school cares about them at all.
