  • Two weeks into the beginning of last year I had all kinds of problems with this school. First I had a problem with the kids lining up outside before and after school. I couldn't just drop off my kindergartener because sometimes there was no staff or teachers to watch them. One time after school my child wondered off instead of staying by the teacher. My friend had told me that she wasn't even watching my child and therefore, didn't know that my child had left.
    The principle also was yelling one morning at the parents about parking issues. My friend who was volunteering at the school told me that my child was put in time out and that the teacher told the students not to look at her or talk to her, so at recess all the kids made fun of her and they were mean to her. They run the place like a boot camp. It is unfriendly and cold. the staff are mean. Personally they need a huge makeover with a new principle and everything.
