  • The teachers are absolutely awesome, but the administrative staff leads one to think "what happened?" We have personally had so many issues in dealing with the administrative staff that we truly feel for the teachers. It seems they are so focused on results, they forget the entire reason they have a job. Some are older and have issues with younger parents as well. They "nitpick" (to put it in Southern terms) at every request and response you give them and make everything a lot harder on the parents. If we had a choice, we would not send our kids here again simply due to the admin staff. It is hard to be a good student/teacher with staff like that.
