    My child loves this school but I have problems with the way some things are handled. The parent that commented about the handouts and not having anything to explain I agree with that. My child is new the this school district and they do things different than he is used too. He has come home telling us that he doesn't understand something and when he tried to ask the teacher about it she yelled at him to sit down and shut up. When my child brings stuff home there is never a return date or an explanation on it I alway end up having to call the school to get more instructions or find out when it is due. Every week they are asking for money for some thing. I do not like that I have enough expenses without extra for all these shool fundraisers.

    Weak leadership. More interested in being PC than in educating the kids. Very poor performing school and nobody fails. Philosophy seems to be "let the next school deal with it."

    The only REAL problem I have with this school is there are NO books...The children have to 'learn' from handouts and if they do not understand something they do not have a book to refer back to. It also appears that they are TRULY NOT learning anything. My child rarely has ANY homework.
