  • I have four children that are currently attending this school. For the last two years I have been very unhappy with the education and whole atmosphere of this school. I am never able to get in contact with the administrators. I really that when you choice a field of especially working with children that should be your passion. I have not seen any passion in any of the teachers there except for Mrs. Lloyd and Ms. Walkin. The only reason my children still attend this school is because, I am a full time student myself. I can understand why this school is on probation. The teachers are not there for the students they are there for a pay check. I would never recommend anybody to allow there children to go there. I don't understand how a school doesn't have nay resources for the children, their policy is taking a kid out of school.
