We love this school! The teachers work hard to provide the best education possible. Sounds to us that some of the concerns listed are personal agenda issues and not really reflective of the school as a whole. This isn't the place to grind your axes. Needless to say the parent that signed his name has also had issues with the town's youth baseball league and other schools.
When it comes to children with special needs the school actually doesn't care. Their grades are manipulated. It's based on effort and not knowledge. I thought that's why they implemented IEP's. Have you really taken the time to ask your child questions on the routines of their 1:1 associates during a test. I have. If your child receives modifications and accommodations that doesn't mean they are entitled to the answers. Your child will take a test, hand it to their 1:1 when they are done and that 1:1 will let them know which answers are wrong and to correct that question. Sometimes this step will take place more than once per question. If your happy that your child is passing with flying colors this year maybe its "US" the parents that need to be re-educated.

The overcrowding problem has been addressed. The school is now a grade 6-8 school. I believe the highly qualified teachers do a great job whether your child is excels or needs extra help the teachers and the principal will work with you to help do what is best for each student. There are lots of extra curricula activities from Jazz Band to art club. There are plenty of after school sports. There is also an after school enrichment program with an extended day program as well. Overall, a great school.
