Great school like the teachers and the principal. School process is very organized good communication with the parents. Never had any issues as a parent. I do agree though with the other parent regarding iPads - they are not helpful they take away focus from learning too much time spent on iTunes and games.

My school is Aptakisic Junior High School and they help students learn and have fun. We have our own iPads to help us. These are very useful and it is easy to communicate and get work to teachers.
School building is Next to major power lines which I find extremely absurd. Cross-country practice/meets happens right under power lines. I can't believe district didn't try to acquire lands during real estate down-turn to build a new building elsewhere. Kids do like school and teachers look friendly. After-school activity/club variety lucking compare to nearby districts. And after-school activity bus seems to take forever. They gave kids IPADs with learning in mind and made them take those home and allowed kids install non-violent games on that device. If I wanted to attach my kid to more electronic devices I would have bought one myself. I am all pro-technology learning but sending those home with kids is unnecessary step. Also school should probably start green biking initiative like other nearby districts adding volunteers to monitor major intersections nearby not just the one across from school.
Its very small and all the teachers are mean. They are not very good at educating. They need to work on it.
Teachers here were very rude and most of them lacked the ability to teach. Almost all of these teachers work here due to connections (parents worked here etc.). They need to hire some real educators.
