This school is lacking in leadership and direction, the overall focus is on the students being prepaired to pass state tests instead of an over all focus on getting an actual education. There is a total lack of respect for parents from the teahers or principal. The goals for a students educational standards are not to exceed expectations only to meet them at the lowest point possible. There is no proceedure in place to encourage communication between the parents, teacher and principle and when asked there is no clear directive or goal for the school but for the students to "explore" their education. There is very little activity by the PTA.
