West Adams Preparatory High School Reviews
This Principle does not understand why students fall, he is very limited in understanding of students and what makes good teachers. This schools CSEE and CST test scores unfortunately will drop! Especially in math and applied science because of this myopic thinking principle. 75% of his teaching and others staff members has opted to transfer.
