School has teachers waiting at the door of the library on book sales days and asks the children to show their money to purchase books before entering the library - otherwise they are not allowed in. I find this deplorable and unethical.
I disagree with the notion that "the scores speak for themselves" as the previous reviewer suggested. The curriculum is quite rigorous, but, in my opinion, too rigid and serves the district (numbers, statistics, etc.) more than it does the student. If your child falls in line, great. If not, there are not a lot of room for adjustment in the curriculum.
