Unprofessionally run by an inept upper administration!!! The takeover has resulted in DECEPTIVE hiring practices, massive layoff of teaching staff within the first month of school, students schedules being changed AT LEAST 3 times during the first quarter. All of which have resulted in overcrowded classrooms, students not getting the classes they signed up for, difficulty meeting the needs of students, unnerved and unhappy parents, INABILITY TO MEET STUDENTS'' NEEDS - which they each most certainly deserve!!!!! Now, they are advertising to hire substitute teachers; no doubt to replace the 6+ teachers they disposed of unconscionable!!!!!!
