Wonderful aspirations...there is too wide a range of student capabilities to meet the needs. Seems to be a lot of turnover and absenteeism with the teachers as well as a higher than average ration of students to teacher. Kids say it's hard to get some time with the teacher to adequately discuss the schoolwork. If you need services - check to see if they can support your needs because they are ramping up and may not have what you need.
