Both my grandchildren have attended Manierre from Kindergarten to fourth and fifth grades. My fifth graders has Cerebral palsy and is a slow learner. She really tries hard and get so frustrated when she can't grasp a problem. She sometimes act out at school because the children are teasing her or abusing her. Sometimes its because she simply can't understand and the teacher doesn't make or have time to help her. Manierre has constantly been on the under achievement list for years. Each year I get a letter stating that the school performance is below the state's average and I have the option to transfer my grandchildren out. But there isn't room in the good schools so they have to remain at Manierre. The staff just doesn't seem to care about the children's educational or emotional growth.
