    There are great teachers at this school who continue to do fantastic work above and beyond their contracts. It's too bad they don't get paid what they deserve.

    I think that being able to track my son's progress online is great and I appreciate the service.

  • (9 years ago)

    This school has not shown adequate yearly progress for three years. The district's solution was to promote the principal to a central administration position. The program is still awful.
