Quality of academic program is excellent! extracurricular activites are available to students. Facilities are good, even though the Obama school needs a new face. Parent involvment is poor. Parents need to get involved with students school work supporting them at home in their academics. They need to question teachers more or ask teachers for help with their child's education.
