School Reviews

Is Not a good school if your child has difficulty Learning Algebra, Try to get help and you are Brushed off, Ask for help until you are blue in the face, And your child keeps failing, Not Earning Credits Twords Graduation, And They Just Ignore the Issue, And don't want to deal with it. Only Care about The Achievers or Sports Stars.. Do not Care About Kids that Struggle to Learn
