Many teachers don't have their teaching license and truly don't know how to teach reading/writing/math if a student needs more support from the chosen curriculum. I truly don't know why there is a long waiting list to attend this school. The draw to this school is the smaller class sizes but in the whole scheme of things, this should not be a factor when choosing the best educational option for your child. I'm relieved to no longer be a part of something that is taking a turn for the worse.
