This has some great staff but unfortunately the majority of the students come from environments that have no parent involvement making it almost impossible for the teachers to "teach". They are so busy trying to overcome language barriers and unruly behavior. A lot of the students come from homes that are broken and don't teach them basic things like respect. The majority of parents are uninvolved and uninterested. Sadly this is the direction our neighborhood has gone leaving it up to the schools to do the job that should be getting done in the home.
