this school is unorganized and instead of focusing on real issue such as academics, they are focusing on the kids uniforms and making them miss important class time for not wearing belts and the right color clothing. the teachers are nonchalant when it comes to teaching the kids

Extracurricular activities are at an all time high along with the freedom of choice of the arts, msic sports and extracurricular activities. Parental involvement is low. This is the one of the main reason for the school grade of D. If and when parental involvement increase, the school grade will increase.
