I found the teachers to busy and to many things to do to focus on education. The classes are to big with no individual atteniton. Communication between teachers and parents is lacking.

I think that the school is great, however some of the teachers have too much going on and do not focus enough on the students. However, there are other teachers that do a fantistic job.

Some exceptional teachers, but sometimes too big and busy to get appropriate quality.
