I once attended this school and now my child is in this school, but I am not happy with the lack of professionalism the principal and vice-principal, along with others have towards parents who want to be involved in their child's education. This school needs better teachers who are qualified to teach the students. The school needs to involve the parents more, in order to help in the child's education. There is also a lack of communication and many parents are clueless of the rights they have as parents.
