    The prinicpal at this school has a great vision for excellence in education but poor follow through. Many of the teachers lack in creativity and flexibility and function as a closed clique. The school culture rejects parent involvement and has rules that prevent parents from even dropping their kids off directly to class. When they do invite parent involvement it's on an extremely selective basis.
