  • This is the worst school that I've ever sent my kids to. The teachers only call you when they want food, not when your child is not doing well. some teachers say that your kids won't learn a thing, and some just don't care. the bathroom doors are open and the kids have no privacy when they go in. the school leaks when it rains. they should just close this school down and start all over again, not to mention they give out your personal information to people without your permission. what is really going on? I'm so glad my kids aren't there anymore and i wouldn't send them back. not even if it was the last school on earth. i would home school them first. at least i'll know then that they would be learning some work and not just how to do the stanky leg
