Are students generally challenged appropriately by the curriculum? Please describe any particular strengths or weaknesses in this area.

The curriculum is generally weak. Some teachers just ignore it. One year an EFM worked as the MS math teacher - his grand plan was to let the kids 'look up math videos on youtube' in lieu of any organized math. He was fired as science teacher mid year as that was also his plan for that...

Other child's teacher was using materials for 4th grade for his 5/6 grade class because there were many special needs. No other parents either noticed or found these things unacceptable. - Dec 28, 2017
