Place more importance on the schools stats for testing than on teaching the students. Place way too many kiddos in sped so the test marks aren't held against them. Pull kiddos from academic classes for help in other academic classes then they need help in multiple academic classes. Punish kids who are being bullied for reporting bullies and don't do anything about bullies. An overall bad experience!
Excellent school. The principal is super involved, runs a tight ship, but is caring and knows the kids. For example she took the time to hand write a note of encouragement to the kids on report cards, and to learn each kid by name. Excellent teachers under her leadership. My kids were very well prepared for middle school.
