  • The staff in this school are terrible especially the school nurse Caruso. She is not a real good person and she is very discriminatory and loud and obnoxious. Why would a school hire someone like her who doesn't have any compassion whatsoever. She should get fired and not work there anymore or at all. Why is it that she doesn't seem to care about kids who are really sick. She is always in a panic mode and gets rattled when someone gets hurt even though it is small enough and be handled by a kid like me. She is useless to be a nurse in there. I think she is not a quality nurse at all or certified on anything. Watch out and check her credentials on how she really handles emergency situations.
