Wakisha Charter School Reviews

By a Parent on

Wakisha has dwendled over the last year or so, the accountability of the to exercise special education laws has caused numeruos problems by which students don't recieve the full educational expect to which they arrive suppose to recieve. As a parent the school has no concept on managing behavior nor the teacher know how or what to teach. As far as I am concern  the recommended state guidelines are ignored and disassembled where parents don't having a fighting chance, I would never recommended wakiska charter to a parent in search of a middle school for there child. Such bad experiences leaves me with bitter feelings.
