The teachers are bored, uninterested, students and have no creative lesson plans. Yes, the classes are easy, but I would like for my sons to obtain an education.

My son is in the 8th grade at SEMS. There are a few things lacking at SEMS. The physical education program there needs a serious overhaul. I voiced my concerns about it, but it is still mediocre.
