They boast of high testing scores and call themselves a prep school. They carry struggling students along because they get paid for attendance and then comb the rolls for students they fear may bring their AIMS scores down and kick them out of the school right before the test is administered. Teachers bonuses are tied to testing scores now so they remove students who may jeopardize the schools ratings right before test time. Dont send your kids here.
