    There was an error in an earilier posting. My grandson passed the third grade without being able to read a clock does not know all of his multiplications up to 11 and can't count money. It's worse then I thought he passed the 4th grade.

    has to be one of the worst schools in this country.it is appalling that a school should be allowed to operate at such a low level of academic structure.the teacher shows an absolute disreguard for parental input to how our children should be treated.i for one am absolutly disgusted with the disrespect shown to my child by this schools staff from the teacher to the principle.if your child is forced to attend this school by a district we as a people pay for my prayers are with you and your child.honestly i cant believe i have to give this school 1 star it does not deserve.
