The teachers in the seventh grade were impressive. They went out of their way in order to help the kids. The dedication of this group of teachers and what they brought to the classroom was brilliant.

Academic programs are average to mediocre. Not enough concentration given by teachers on correct punctuation, grammer, and spelling as should be on this level.
