My son attended this school in 2006-2007,his teacher did not care if he learned. He did not send progress reports. He had them doing jumping jacks rather than work. When complaints made to principal still no results. I felt that he should have been better prepared to handle all types of student learning and behavior and he was not prepared to do this. K. Thomas
