Teachers are so busy and tired - they just don't care about one more student. They don't ask you questions - just penalize you. Emotional health here is sick! very sick. If you have a normal happy kid then don't come here cuz you will get someone else back.

just google pausd & jordan lawsuits and you will see Jordan is sued quite often. they only focus on star athletes and smart kids who cheat by the way (google that too). No transparency and if your parents aren't important, you get pushed around and no support. for IEPs you have room #1 or room #2 irregardless of your needs.

I believe that if you sit with the teacher and come in during nutrition or lunch that teacher will help you in any way possible. Ms. Lopez which is a math and avid teacher has always been so joyful with us coming into her class so welcoming everyone can honestly open up and have a conversation with her.
