this school is horrible, the no child left behind is insane. the teachers just dont understand how to teach, so the kids dont get passing grades and they still pass them anyway because of the no child left behind rule.

Would like problems addressed more, I sent several notes to my daughters teacher and they where pretty much not taken seriously.
