    Overcrowded. They need to keep it cleaner.

  • (9 years ago)

    There is diversity in the types and quantity of classes but the need for quality instructors still prevails. There are extracurricular activities that children are able to participate in but only a small percentage do so. Children requiring special assistance are given lip service but no real value.
