This school really needs to take a look at their ability to assist their students in learning and not worry so much about the appearance that they do. The vote or whatever was done to bring in a foreign math (Singapore) to this area is absolutely ridiculous. Math is one of the most difficult subjects for all students and this school has done nothing but choose to make it more difficult. They give no assistance to the students as the teachers do not even understand it, then expect to send homework home with these students that do not understand it and expect the parents to be able to assist with this. This needs to be taken out of the schools in this area and we need to return to good old American Math that we all know and understand. I feel that the current principle was a wonderful counselor but not so much a principle. Concerned parent.......
