Classes are too large (35 students to 1 teacher in most of the classes) Instruction is nothing to brag about. I understand that the school has serious problems maintaining order in the school, but our children have never been in trouble, and the scare tactics they use are unusually intimidating. School administrators treat parents and students like criminals.
