Posted April 17, 2014

I think short mountain is a pretty good school overall as far as my child learning what she should and has never really complained about any of her teachers not treating her fairly. The only 2 negative things I would like to point out is I don't think the principal is qualified to do his job or maybe just incompetent. I've only had one interaction with him a parent teacher meeting due to an issue with my child so I asked that he be there and he never said a word even when asked questions maybe just a mumble or ok, and I also think the fundraisers they have are to a point illegitimate because I've seen kids get to participate and take others spots that actually did the work to participate like your supposed to just because their parents donated money/props.
