Last year the teacher my son had was nice bit a bit disorganized. I feel like my son backslided a little because he was further ahead in his other school. This year his teacher is a lot better. The staff is nice. Their websites for lunch and absent reporting don't seem to work for me.

School has the worst faculty and administrative staff with the worst communication skills I have ever seen. Teachers seem alright, but the school is suffering and it shows.
