  1. Terrible, Terrible, Terrible!!!!!!!!!! Not inclusive and the mindset of the principal Ms. Long is disturbing. She does not believe in including kids with SN in “her” school. The resource teacher is also terrible. It is a true shame the way this school handles their students with IEP’s. They rather move them to a different school / program then set them up to be successful in their home school environment.
