  • I am a parent and volunteer at this school. Some of the staff gossips about parent's issues and I've seen teachers yell in kid's faces. I've seen a teacher pull the front neck of a kindergartner's shirt to get him back in the line. There are a few good teachers there but there are plenty there that have a negative view on children and talk disrespectfully to them. Some of the staff is very unprofessional and they are not used to parents being involved with their child's education and would prefer parents not be in the classroom. Some teacher's my children had did not return my calls or emails when I had questions. I have left a message for the principal to call me about child placement and she has yet to return my call. There parents there that care which teacher their child is paired with then there are the parents who could careless. The school doesn't favor the parents that care about teacher quality and child/teacher pairing for maximized success.
