  • If you love your child, please do not send your child there. This is school right out of Stepford. The teachers are very rude and the Administration is so incompetent that it is painful to watch. The School attempts to portray an air of sophistication to compensate for the lack of commitment to the children.

  • Some of the teachers and assistants are good, but the administration is lacking and my son never managed to get into a good classroom here. I had to change teachers after his first was constantly complaining about him to me and his second teacher had no classroom management skills and was extremely rude to me. Administration did not respect me and would blatantly go against my wishes when it came to who was allowed to see my son or pick him up. I usually felt like the staff thought they were better than the parents and would treat most of us as such. The couple of times I needed to speak to the Head of School she would interupt me and not listen to my concerns. I was never able to attend parent teacher conferences because they are only scheduled during a workday. The one time I scheduled time off at my school (I am a teacher) to come to the appointment, I was 5 minutes late because it is very difficult to get a sub, and when I showed up his teacher rudely said "You're too late, I'm not going to meet with you" and ushered me out of the room, even though we still had 25 minutes of time scheduled together. When I told upper management about this and said I was very upset, they told me that I was mistaken and none of their teachers would treat parents this way. It was not a good experience for the year and a half my son was there.

  • My son has been in this school for couple months, he's 2, that's his first school.. In general, everything seems ok, but some details do bother me, like the teacher seems too busy and distracted , because group is pretty big, she can't give enough attention to every child, today i was changing my son and noticed, that apparently, he pooped before at school, but weren't wiped properly, the stuff just got dried up on his skin! I can see, that teacher has some kids as her favorites, and what about others?! Thinkig about changing school..
