Posted October 25, 2013

My son is in 8th grade and from what ive seen so far, the teachers he has, they seem to care about their students. You do not get that, that often these days. Most of his teachers do keep in touch with me as in, i will get a text message if he does not turn in his homework or if he doesnt eat lunch, the let me know. They seem to have a genuine concern for the students. I cant say anything about the other grades. But my son seems to love this school.

My children have been going to this school for 3yrs. It is very clickish and does not show concern for children when parents express a need for help or improvement. Does not offer any tutoring service, or at least no one knows anyone who tutors children. The eighth grade teachers however do appear to have concern for the children.
