Not happy. Parent teacher communicate is minimum and the administration encourages minimum contact. When asked for more contact, parent was brushed off. Administration has no interest in parent efforts or simple resolution to problems. Kids are taught to test high on tests, not thinking for themselves. Administration and teacher got offended when questioned. Would not recommend.
