Some teachers are outstanding, however some (though very few) are not able to challenge the kids to an extent, kids are capable of. I hope, these teachers can go through some training program, so kids can benefit maximum out of the teacher as well.

This school is terrible. The teachers do not strive to teach the students, all the students do is take notes and watch videos. The sports programs are very dissatisfactory due to the lack of coaches. Lastly, my child is always told to take drugs.
