I was pleased to see a comprehensive music curriculum offered, but the after school programs allow for my child returning home well after dark, and having to walk home through town, They teach pretty much at grade level, but have no concern for parents that report exceptional students and allow for that. They tend to be judgemental and make parents feel inadequate. Safety concerns tend to be blithely ignored. The teachers DO seem to care deeply for the children, often going out of their way to help out, and at least some of them stay in regular contact with parents when needed or requested. In short, individuals shine while the overall process here is politically motivated.
