    Overall I am pretty happy with this school. I did however give the Teacher quality a lower grade because I graded them as a whole. I find myself teaching my 6th grader from their homework more than I feel I should I was under the impression that they should be learning that in class like I did as a student. I have also learned that just starting the second nine weeks my 6th grader has already watched about 10 movies maybe this is why I am the one teaching them?
