I myself went to tioga jr high, I have always wanted my child to attended Tioga and we had such a wonderful experience that is until he went to the jr high. I've had nothing but a hard time getting the teachers too help me , help my child!! They are only there for a check and nothing more. From the first bell to the last bell of the day, my child gets 504 and yet they do not allow extra time for the testing, the science / social studies teacher whom I have called upon many times for help does not help but puts blame upon others, I will not be sending my child back next year and will be going to the RPSB with my concerns
