At the beginning of the school year was great. Now it is like nobody don't care my daughter is failing 4th grade because there are to many kids in the class room and she needs to be redirected to do her work and it just seems like they don't care no more

my son is a 1st grade 1st time walker,I don't think there's enough organization after dismisal.

The school's theme is 'Gifted and Talented' but I don't see enough opportunities for those kind of children. I think kids are not challenged enough.I also wish there were other world languages besides Spanish.
