This school is really trash and can get shut down for all I care.
The classes at this school are very over crowded. In our 4th grader's class there are 35 students that are practically sitting on top of each other. This is so unfair to the students and the teacher. There is no possible way that she can honestly know the abilities of each of the students. The academics have dropped tremendously. Our 4th grader came from being student of the month several times, principal honor roll for two years running now to making b's and c's.. This problem needs to be addressed immediately. We are very involved with what is going on in class.
