This school is all about parents involvement while the administration requires you to volunteer a certain number of hours. Good luck finding a solution to a problem. Teachers are great. Administration has no idea what they are doing. Safety is a BIG issue. Health the department of health should really look into the school. What is this school getting funding from the board of education and others I have yet to find an answer.
