We no longer attend this school. The teachers that we had dealt with where very kind. My son's first grade teacher was my favorite. She was very concerned about all her students. Sadly, the school district just didn't back her up with getting additional help for my son. Not once did I ever meet the principal or vice principal. It was a struggle for both the teacher and my self to obtain any additional help for my son. If only his kindergarten teacher, very kind, was up front with the difficulties my son was having in school we would not be in the issue that we found ourselves starting in first grade. Thankfully his first grade teacher stepped.
