No matter how far behind you are , the teachers will help you & beyond . They will motivate you , to do good in school and outside of school.
The teachers at this school overall do rather well with the grading, and making sure students keep up with their credits. If students don't show up for appointments with their teachers, the teachers call home and make sure the student reschedules. After too many missed days they will reconsider the way the student is receiving their education.
