    I'm a parent advocate of my child. He is in a regular classroom has an IEP (which he does not use). This particular school has been wonderful motivational strict fair with a loyal commitment to children. You can compare our test scores to the rest of the state. Being from an area with low finance this hasn't keep our school from being able to motivate and stimulate the students minds. The teachers have been able to achieve in the schools by being fair and loyal to their trade. Understanding that every child is different and learns different (which makes a difference). They take their time and don't progress to another part of their teaching agenda until every child (gets it). Always going back to old material as they go on to new to keep what the children learn reinforced. It's a wonderful school that works with parents and students.
