This school is doing worst each year and it is sad because there are a few teachers who are excellent. The principal is not concerned with the needs of the students, especially if the student happens to be a special education child with special needs, they are quick to label the child and suspend them. The teachers that are willing to help are stopped and their jobs are jeopardized. However, the assistant principal is a cool guy, he is soft spoken and a sweetheart, he is willing to work with the parent in all areas but there is so much he can do as assistant principal, this guy belongs at a much better school. This school has a large population of immigrants and not a one person in the school to represent them and consider their concern. The IEP team is not a good group at all. They lack professionalism and are oblivious of the parents concerns and input.
