  • I am a teacher so I have some background infofrmation on elem. schools. My nephew went to this school and it was the worse experience for him that he could have had. He was in kindergarten and had 2 recesses a week. He was never allowed to talk. His mother and him had to sign agreement that he would not talk in class (even p.e.)He loved to read and play school until he had this teacher and school system and then he started hating school. Thank God that he was able to change schools for first grade where he now loves to learn again.
