Grateful to: Staff member
Submitted by a parent · July 11, 2016
i feel sorry for the teachers and staff -- their leaders are bullies, and everyone walks around on eggshells. innovative ideas not welcomed unless they come from the principal first.

Amount of homework: Not enough
Submitted by a parent · July 11, 2016
homework was not worth much -- doing sentences in the word study book mostly. or worksheets to color.

Develops grit: Disagree
Submitted by a parent · July 11, 2016
i think they are developing a dislike of school -- such that these kids will fail in higher grades because they have not been exposed to anything but language arts and math.

Develops empathy: Neutral
Submitted by a parent · July 11, 2016
maybe individual teachers do but there is no ethos at the school to do unto others -- they try to keepthe students apart as much as possible.
