I only gave it one star, but I would give it no stars if I could!! The school only cares about their ratings and they just pile stuff on the students even if they haven't learned the subject. They don't offer tutorials when asked & my daughter says during tests if she's having a real hard time then the teacher will whisper her the answer. It was a lot better when Mr. Weems was principle!! He actually cared for the students but with this new principle Mrs. Jacobs, she seems like all she cares about is how higher ratings as a principle is.
