Dan River was a place where I felt comfortable. Sure, there were days when things didn't go well, but things were great overall.

Considering the level of which parents are involved, it should not be a mystery as to why certain students fail to gain the most basic of knowledge. More or less it is the students apathy that reflects on the teachers and creates a mutual negative attitude in which the parents cannot infiltrate.
