The school has many problems ranging from the lack of appropriate building security to the lack of teacher training and support. Students are clustered in classes for their core courses thereby allowing those excelling to move-up grade levels, but also allowing other children to move down grade levels. This could have advantages, but it appears it is easier to move kids down than to bring them up. This school failed to teach my child to read and my child was taught to do so at home.
As a parent, I was shocked to find out the misinformation that was being taught in history/social studies and science. My elder child's first year covered content that was at or below the instruction she had received the prior year in a different state. These are also the same teachers that complained to the class that they did not get paid enough (sadly true) and were working 2nd jobs.
This school has struggled long enough--get new leadership or close it already!
