This school is disappointing on so many levels. The curriculum is focused on teaching children how to take a standardized tests. They teach so the kids will do well on the test and prove then it is a good school. They do not prepare the children for middle school and are full of excuses and false claims when challenged or questioned. They have some teachers that have been their way too long. The basics are not being taught and I worry this is a waste of time for my child.
