    The teachers did not listen to students to find what they needed

  • (10 years ago)

    After two years grades 7 and 8 I pleased to say my son has progressed in academic and social skills. His GPA is a 3.9 and he's received numerous awards for academic excellence. All this is due to the stellar guidance and support of wonderful teachers. I can't thank them enough.
