    The teachers for the most part are encouraging and genuinely care about the students. A few are unqualified in my opinion. The principal is a flake but the current administrative assistant is a great educator and is a key part of the school in the disciplinary factor. In general the school is safe and one of the best schools in the Valley academically. Some of the staff needs to be replaced but your child is ensured a packed 3 years of learning. Something I wish they'd fix in future years is the schedule and weekly emails become more efficient towards parents students and staff and that benefit everyone's learning. The new SBACK testing is also a stressful test for students and they didn't even start yet! The PBIS system is also unneeded. But these programs are driven to help students so I suppose there is a half logical reason for them.
