It's a school and if you don't really care about the education and environment your children are brought up in this will do as well as any other. We moved here in the last few years and have seen our children nothing but struggle. They were towards the top of their class and very engaged in our last school system but are barely scraping by here. The children are rude & undisciplined there is no uniforms which also causes problems. Class sizes are the maximum allowed by the state and are not handled well. Teachers attempt to teach and I believe do genuinely care but the class sizes are so large they don't get a chance. The curriculum is a joke and does not at all stress mastery of any subject matter. The math taught is particularly bad and has very very bad reviews. This school is raising another generation (x gen'er myself) that cannot complete simple multiplication or division without a calculator. The math here I affectionately call everyday c*** is a joke compared to Singapore math. I may not be a genius but as an engineer I can see when something isn't working do an evaluation and assign resolution. I... don't know how I'll do it but the only resolution I see is home-school.
