I feel that this school/district admin are completely unsupportive and do not tend to students needs whatsoever. If the child does not fit into a mold, he/she falls through the cracks. I gave the district 2 years and I am pulling my child out for second grade.

The teachers and staff are genuinely involved with the children and the parents. They have lots of activities and fun nights where they host reading or math games or pajama nights. My children love it here.
