  • My daughter has been attending the school since she is in kindergarten and she is now in the second grade. The two teachers she has had (she has had the same teacher for kindergarten and first grade) have been great in teaching. Nevertheless, the teachers have their challenges with disruptive behavior in the classroom and I do not believe the Principal and Assistant Principal do enough to enforce discipline with students who misbehave - dismissal is the worst! The children running, yelling, cursing, fighting in front of faculty and nothing is done. I believe the facility intentions are good but they need to follow up with parents/students on what is acceptable behavior and what would is not tolerated. The amount stories my daughter comes home and tell me about concerned about her safety, so I am moving my child out of this school at the end of this school year. However, she is performing at 3 & 4.
