Some of my teachers are very caring, and try to he best of their ability to prepare the students. Unfortunately, this is not true for all of the teachers; it seems to me that some teachers don't care about preparing their students.
My daughter is currently attending Sparks HS for 8th grade. The program is designed to help your child with the transformation from a middle school student to a highschool student. My daughter is currently taking Algebra 1/2 and a foreign language and she'll recieve Highschool credit for those at the beginning of the year.
