Nathlie White: My grand daughter has improved her grades but I am not happy with the administration of this school. My daughter and I have experienced the principal not tell the truth and very unprofessional actions by him.
My grand daughter never brings any work home but is making A's, B's and C's in her classes which makes me wonder how this encourages strong study habits. I do not think they are preparing her for regular high school and certainly not college. I know she was placed in this school because of her actions but the examples she has of some of the adults in the school will not benefit her going forward.
