Supports LD students: Agree
Submitted by a parent · February 10, 2017
Once they discovered the extent of my sons ADHD symptoms I have always worried about the potential for the school to find reasons to kick him out.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree
Submitted by a parent · February 10, 2017
The school allows its PTO to censor the types of books allowed to be visible at the book fair. The principal also censors books.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree
Submitted by a parent · February 10, 2017
My sons teacher is amazing. She is patient with him and works to make sure he is participating and learning despite his ADHD.

Amount of homework: Disagree
Submitted by a parent · February 10, 2017
The homework load is what I experienced in high school. For a 4th grader it is absolutely ridiculous.
