  • If i were a parent searching for a good new school for my child, i wouldn't look here. the faculty and staff are very rude, and the teachers only tell me when my child misbehaves and don't tell me when something has happened to my child. i have the right to know what happens to my child, and when i ask about what my daughter has told me, they try to evade the questions. i don't believe that i would ever recommend this school to anyone!
