    I don't know about prejudice and racism . We would like to see more challenging assignments given to our daughter. I don't remember her having homework more than two or three times all last year. She is an honor student bur even honor students should be challenged in order to realize their full potential.

    thumbs down...both my kids have been to different schools and only problem at this one. I think there is alot of prejudice and racism among the teachers. Makes kids feel uncomfortable.
