I appreciate the support for Bret hart. All schools ahve their challenges, but the administation and staff are willing to meet those challenges. The district, on the other hand, holds them back. The more effort the parents put out, the more the teachers put out. And the kids benefit!

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
