My child has attended this school for two years now. There is no communication from the school, no extracuricular activities, the teachers are often times visibly frustrated, there is a huge bullying issue in this school, there are no arts, there are no assemblies, the principal isn't ever there, there isn't even enough money for paper and the children have to draw on the back of their old school work, no parent involvement, and all they do is coach the kids to pass their NECAP so they can lose their SINI classification.
