  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on May 05, 2007
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I had a very bad experience with this school.The staffs is very rude. My child had academic and social problems. All the APs wanted to do was to transfer my child out. The school did not offer any source of help. As a parent I felt my child was being push out from school and into more trouble instead of offering some source of counseling, extra help or other solutions.
    Some of the new teaching staffs was very understanding and tried to help but with no support from the APs.
