    Considering there are so many kids in this school and I know it is hard the children seem pretty satisfied with the school in general. However I have had a great problem getting no response from some of the teachers even after repeated attempts. This is no time for the teachers not to stay in contact wiht the parents. Especially when the parents are interested and trying to follow their children during this transitional period. This is much a problem to me as I still had no response from the teacher.
