  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on April 28, 2009
  • Rating: 3 (3 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • this school singles certain people out for discipline, while others' bad behavior is ignored, especially intimidation and violence. I know because I was a volunteer and broke up a fight--told someone who worked there, even tho many who worked there saw it and no one broke it up but me--yet, the principal never found out about it. bullies are tolerated and don't get in trouble. little preschoolers who do little kid things are written up for it rather than just being reprimanded by the teacher, and 5yr olds who are too affectionate or experimenting with non-****** things are made out to be doing ****** things and written up in that fashion, as "public display of affection". so far, I cannot vouch for any other school in Casa Grande yet, but this one is not good, in my opinion.
